OA Barometer 2022
Data on the transformation from subscription systems to open access
According to Forschungszentrum Jülich’s Open Access Strategy, the Central Library is responsible for overseeing the transition from subscription to open access systems and for managing expenditure on subscription journals so as to ensure that sufficient funds are available for gold open access article processing charges (APCs).

ZB documents its course of action in the Open Access Barometer. The total expenditure, number of Jülich publications, average expenditure per corresponding author publication for each publisher, and the distribution of types of cost per publishing house are documented for the 13 most important publishers (ranked according to turnover and number of publications). In a time series starting in 2016, the relative development of types of cost is also shown.
In 2022, transformation spending was divided (where possible) into reading and publication expenditure. As a result, “access fees” now make up a larger share than the “subscription fees” from the previous year.
This year, ZB has added details on the information budget to the Open Access Barometer.
