Denmark’s National Strategy for Open Access

Denmark’s National Strategy for Open Access forms the basis of work by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science with relation to research publications

The strategy states that the implementation of Open Access is to take place through the green model – i.e. parallel filling of quality-assured research articles in institutional or subject-specific archives (repositories) with Open Access. However, the strategy does not exclude the use of the golden model as long as it does not increase the expenses for publication.

Two central principles form the basis for the strategy:

  • The implementation of the Open Access is to support the possibility for Danish researchers to continue to publish in the most recognised national and international journals, and also the possibility to publish
  • For the sake of research and society, it is stressed that it is crucial that the aggregate public expenditure to research publications is not increased significantly because of the implementation of Open Access
