The Danish Open Access indicator monitors how the Danish universities implement the National Strategy for Open Access.

Each year, the Indicator collects data about the Danish production of research publications and divides them into three categories:

  1. Realised Open Access – Referring to publications that are freely accessible online, without any requirements for payment or other forms of barriers.
  2. Unused Open Access rights – Referring to publications that are not freely accessible online, but which have been published in journals, which allow Green Open Access with an embargo period of up to one year.
  3. Blocked Open Access – Referring to publications that are not freely accessible online and which have been published in journals with an embargo period of more than one year or with an unclear Open Access policy.

The Open Access indicator monitors the progress on a yearly basis, showing annual statistics for the country as a whole as well as for the individual universities.
