[google transl.] Open APC: How much do we pay for open access?
Open APC collects data on the costs incurred by universities and research institutions to fund open access for a fee, through so-called APCs. Preparing these data - as Paola Galimberti writes about the University of Milan - requires careful control work, but their aggregation would allow us to have the pulse not only of the overall expenditure, but also - for example - of which publishers derive the most from hybrid open access.
The data can be viewed according to different criteria: OpenAPC, however, is of little use to Italian scholars and administrators because, at the time this text was written, only one institution in our country was able to provide them with the statistics available to them.
