"The Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation just released a draft open-access mandate for publicly-funded research in Denmark. It's a green policy (following the EU and US rather than the UK) and make use of rights retention (following the Wellcome Trust, NIH, and Harvard).
I called it a policy for publicly-funded research, but it aspires to go further: "To create free access for all citizens, researchers and companies to all research articles from Danish research institutions financed by public authorities and/or private foundations."
It doesn't yet include details that matter to OA specialists, e.g. timing of deposits, embargoes, open licensing, and application to data. But I imagine that these details will come in due time. Meanwhile the Ministry has signaled its commitment to open access and is open to comments."
