This dataset contains article processing charge (APC) data which some institutions in the UK have released as part of their compliance with the RCUK open access policy. The data covers APCs paid from RCUK funds from 1 April 2013 - 31 July 2014. The data has been taken from other publicly available datasets and re-combined into a single standard format (see https://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/Jisc-Monitor/APC-data-collection/). It should not be regarded as representing all APCs paid by these institutions.

Originally, the data was from institutions which chose to release it themselves. It has now been expanded to include data released by RCUK in March 2015 (http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/research/openaccess/2014review/data/). The dataset contains data on 3,721 APCs from 29 institutions.

UPDATE 05/06/2015: 13 APCs from Northumbria University were removed because they were not paid from RCUK funds.
