"Danish Minister is strong support of Open Access ...   Earlier this year - at the ESOF conference in Copenhagen - Sofie Carsten Nielsen, Denmark’s Minister of Higher Education and Science announced the long awaited Danish Open Access strategy. In her presentation she underlined her support to Open Access by pointing out the Open Access started as a movement but today is an integral part of the overall framework for research. 'We need to push this agenda forward' stated Sofie Carsten Nielsen ... What is remarkable in the Danish strategy for Open Access are the ambitious goals to reach Open Access to 80 % of all publically funded peer reviewed articles in 2017 and concluding this with 100 % in 2022 ... In order to reach these goals the minister have put down a high profile steering committee chaired by Hans Müller Pedersen, Director of the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation. In return the steering committee have been mandated to include representatives from and appointed by all universities in Denmark, and to put down ad-hoc working groups that includes relevant experts in order deal with the technical and practical implications of the strategy ... Currently two working groups have been announced. The first working group will work on a solution compatible with the Open Access requirements for Danish journals. The second working group will clarify how reaching the goals can be measured ongoing – by establishing and running an Open Access Barometer in relation to the Danish National Research Database."
