”As soon as possible” : A comparative study of Open Access-policies in Scandinavia (English)
Abstract [en]

Open access (OA) is a publishing model aimed at increasing the access to academic research results. The object of this study was to contrast nine colleges and four funding organizations in Scandinavia with mandatory OA-policies, and to study how they put OA into practice. Inspired by the Open Access Spectrum (OAS), a tool used to appreciate the OA of academic journals, the aim was to grade the policy documents of the colleges using the OASmodel. The study also compares how the colleges implement their OA-policies as well as how, and if, the demands from the funding organizations are reflected in the policies of the colleges. The findings show that the OAS is not a tool designed for green OA and that all the information needed for the scale to function was not found in the policy documents we studied. A selection of the colleges has some demands in their policies, although most of them allow exceptions to be made from the mandatory policy. This is shown to be mainly a question of academic freedom, and copyright, or rather than the degree to which the scientist and the publisher can come to an agreement on allowing the information to be accessible through OA. The study proposes that the way to change this may be to increase the demands on OA in the policies, and that the best solution might be in stipulations within the employment contracts between the individual colleges and scientist.
