Open Access Costs

At present, only the data from the publication fund of the main library are available for monitoring Open Access costs at UZH, as publication fees are not recorded centrally at UZH.

Article fees that were fully or partially financed from 2012-2019 from the publication fund for the humanities and social sciences managed by the Main Library are recorded in OpenAPC. The international OpenAPC initiative aims to make the costs paid by universities and research funders transparently accessible. Interested institutions can submit corresponding lists to OpenAPC.

Individual data sets can be downloaded directly from Github.

The graph is embedded directly from OpenAPC and shows the expenditure in euros per publisher. The view can be filtered per year. Detailed figures can be found in the table.
