Strategy

The national strategy of 2018 aims at 100 % Open Access in 2025 – based on two efforts:
1) The establishment of OA rights to all publications. 2) The full use of these OA rights.
Thus Realised OA should rise to 100 %, and Unrealised and Blocked OA should fall to 0 %.

Blocked Publications that are blocked from becoming Open Access due to publisher policies
Unrealised Publications with unrealised Open Access rights
Realised Publications with realised Open Access

Blocked: Publications that are blocked from becoming Open Access due to publisher policies
Unrealised: Publications with unrealised Open Access rights
Realised: Publications with realised Open Access

The data behind the strategy

Indicator Year* 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025
Blocked 25% 21% 18% 14% 11% 7% 4% 0%
Unrealised 39% 34% 28% 22% 17% 11% 6% 0%
Realised 36% 45% 54% 63% 73% 82% 91% 100%

*The indicator is calculated yearly in Q1. It is calculated on the basis of publications published two years earlier.

This in order to credit publications with a 12 months Open Access embargo published late in a given publication year.
