      OA-barometer 2009



      The project has recently started; web site will be forthcoming.



      Summary
      In 2007-2008 a research team at Hanken developed an emperical method
      to measure the total amount of peer reviewed articles published
      globally as well as their OA availability. In this project they will
      renew and further develop the study as well as carry out a regional
      study of the Nordic countries. The Nordic part of the study will
      answer the following questions:

      What share of scientific articles published in the Nordic countries is
      available open access?
      What portion of the output of Nordic scholars is available as open access?
      The project will also construct a list of the between 500-1000
      scholary journals that are published in the Nordic countries and check
      their total article output as well as which part is available open
      access. The project can also see what kind of impact the establishment
      of institutional repositories in the Nordic countries has on the open
      access availabelity of Nordic scholary output.

      The target results of the project is a precise measure of how large a
      share of the overall volume of scientific journal litterature is
      available openly. By repeating a study from 2008 it will be possible
      to see trends concerning a possible increase in OA. The results
      concerning the Nordic journals and their open access availability
      would be interesting information for all participants in the OA
      discussion.

      Hanken and Lund university library are commited to repeating the study in 2011.
