New Blog Post: “Open Access Figures in the Netherlands”

From the OpenAccess.NL Blog:

Two employees of Utrecht University Library, Jeroen Bosman and Bianca Kramer, have measured how many articles and reviews of researchers from Dutch universities have been published open access. They used the new available open access data from Web of Science and the online tool oaDOI. The results have been published as preprint in PeerJPreprints [*] as part of a broader study. All used data are available via Zenodo. The data is available per university and the outcomes for 2016 provide insight into current developments.

The study shows that 42% of all peer-reviewed articles from the Netherlands and published in 2016 is available in open access.
