Open Access to Dutch Research Stagnating 2012-08-20


[Forwarded from the SPARC OA Forum] “*Utrecht, 2 April 2012 – *Open Access to higher education research results is not increasing. This is shown by the *Dutch Research Repositories Monitor 2011 **, a study commissioned by SURF . Although the Berlin Declaration on Open Accesshas been signed by all the Dutch universities, the Association of Universities of Applied Sciences (HBO-raad), the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), it has not been put to action in the form of 
specific objectives. There are only a few universities at which the percentage of Open Access publications exceeds 20%. In the Knowledge Bank for Universities of Applied 
Sciences, which provides access to the knowledge products of these institutions, the number of openly accessible publications and graduation projects is lagging behind the number of graduates and *lectoraten* (knowledge networks). The study compares the situation of the university repositories in 2007 and 2011. This is the first time such a study has been carried out for the 
universities of applied sciences.”
