(Oct 2021) The Council of New Zealand University Librarians (CONZUL) has released its State of open access in Aotearoa Year 3 report. Here’s the scope of the study:
“This is the third iteration of our work, meaning we can start to analyse trends over time. Our dataset comprises publications from 2017 – 2019 with a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) with at least one researcher affiliated with a New Zealand university. Our figures include books and book chapters but we note these represent only a small proportion of our publications; there is no APC information readily available for open books and so APC estimates only count journal articles. Any publication not indexed in Scopus/Web of Science or without a DOI (e.g. print books and many New Zealand journals such as NZ Medical Journal or NZ Law Journal, etc.) is not included.”
