The European University Association (EUA) has published a report "A closer look at Open Access to research publications in European Universities". The report was released on 19 January 2022 and specifically presents the findings on Open Access from EUA’s 2020-2021 Open Science Survey.
The report addresses the following questions: How do universities monitor Open Access activities? How are universities preparing for the implementation of Plan S, which will apply to all Horizon Europe funding recipients? What major steps have universities recently taken to further the implementation of Open Access?
The document is a follow-up to the EUA's 2020-21 Open Science Survey and provides further insight into universities’ Open Access experiences. It is part of a series of three follow-up reports to the main EUA 2020-2021 Open Science Survey report, which examine Open Science in academic assessment and research data in more depth. The third report (forthcoming in 2022) will take a closer look at the topic of research data.
