Update of the Open Access Observatory

The Open Access Observatory shows for each year since 2011, the scientific articles of the 11 participating universities published in open and closed access. Until 2021 the degree of openness has been calculated from data extracted from Web of Science and Scopus, but from 2023, data extracted fromOpenalex from ROR of each university. After removing duplicates, the number of articles is retrieved from the DOI that:

  • They have been published in purely open access magazines
  • have been published in hybrid journals, i.e. subscription journals that offer authors to publish in open access immediately by paying an Article Processing Charge​​​​
  • They have free access but the articles have no license: bronze
  • They are only open in institutional or thematic repositories
  • they are not in open access

The information is updated 2 times a year, during the months of April and October.
