"Information on Open Access in Slovenian language is available through the national portal openaccess.si. More than 35 Slovenian scientific journals are indexed in DOAJ (out of app. 120). The country does not have a national portal for Open Access journals. The electronic versions of all publicly co-financed Slovenian subscription journals (app. 65 titles) and final reports of research projects, financed by the Slovenian Research Agency, must be deposited into the Digital Library of Slovenia. There are five active OAI-PMH interoperable repositories (no national portal): Digital Library of Slovenia, Digital Library of the University of Maribor, ePrints.FRI, PeFprints and Digital Repository UL FGG. Some of the research institutions publish Open Access monographs (e.g., Digital Library of the Educational Research Institute). The country does not have a national portal for Open Access monographs. Social Science Data Archives, a member of CESSDA, maintained by the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana, is collecting raw research data from social sciences research. Slovenia takes part in OpenAIRE and OpenAIREplus projects. National Open Access initiatives are being supported by EIFL-OA program. None of the Slovenian institutions has signed any of the Open Access declarations. Slovenian research funders and institutions have not yet formed the Open Access policies...."
