The Danish Open Access Indicator aims at providing transparency in regards to processes, data foundation, criterias etc. This page compiles information, important dates and user guides considered relevant for the Open Access implementors at the Danish universities.
The annual production cycle
The annual launch of the Open Access percentage in Denmark is the result of a year long process including testruns, hearing periods with the involvement of the universities, adjustments etc. A visual overview of the annual production cycle is available online.
Using external repositories
The Open Access Indicator measures Open Access from both local and other recognized Open Access repositories. An authority list of recognized external repositories is updated yearly, based on input from the Danish universities. During a hearing period, the universities may suggest new repositories to be added to the list.
The current authority list, the criteria for inclusion, and a guide to correct linking is explained in this guide.
Journals with long embargoes
Since 2017, a list of journals with embargoes exceeding the months allowed by the National Open Access Strategy is maintained. Articles published in one of these journals is classified as blocked Open Access in the Open Access Indicator. The list is updated annually based on input from the universities.
The former lists of journals with embargoes exceeding 12 months can be downloaded under the header Data
