About

The aim of this repository is:

  • to release datasets on fees paid for Open Access journal articles by Universities and Research Society Funds under an Open Database License
  • to demonstrate how reporting on fee-based Open Access publishing can be made more transparent and reproducible across institutions.

Participating German Universities

So far, the following German universities have agreed to share information on paid author processing charges (APC):

Participating Research Society Funds in Germany

Dataset on funds that are supported by research societies under its Open-Access Publishing Programme.

Participating Research Organizations:

The data content covers APCs as paid for by our central budget for the Max Planck Society (MPS). APCs funded locally by Max Planck Institutes are not part of this data set. The MPS has a limited input tax reduction. The refund of input VAT for APC is 20%. Until the end of 2007 the MPS was VAT exempt.

Articles published in hybrid open access journals

Hybrid open access journals, which allow articles to be published immediatley as open access after a charge was paid, rely on both publication fees and subscritions as revenue source. This dataset covers 9,368 open access articles being published in hybrid journals. Total expenditure amounts to 43,597,672 €. Average fee is 2,420 € and the median 2,400 €.

The following institutions have contributed expenditures on hybrid open access journal articles.
