Open Access Tracker released!

The MedOANet project is pleased to announce the release of the Open Access Tracker.

The Open Access Tracker brings together information on journals, repositories, institutional policies, funder’s policies and publishers’ self-archiving policies, representing Open Access activities in six Mediterranean countries: Greece, Turkey, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal.

The Tracker draws information from authoritative services such as DOAJ,SHERPA/RoMEO, SHERPA/Juliet, OpenDOAR, ROARMAP. It shows the growth of different types of Open Access activities and policies in numbers, effectively creating a profile for each country; it also visually presents the growth of these different types of Open Access resources by country, by year as recorded in the external sources. The Tracker is intended to encourage the stakeholder community to register its open access resources with these established services from which it draws information, in order to increase the accuracy of information regarding the state of open access in the six countries.
