The assessments of the relevance of Open Science methods differ significantly according to the type of institution. Open Access is a highly relevant topic for 76.9 percent of state-run universities. At universities of applied sciences, this is only 44.2 percent. The topic of open source is also more relevant for universities than for the other types of higher education institutions. ...
