COAF, Jisc and RCUK APC data 2013-2015
datasetposted on 24.06.2016, 13:12 by Katie Shamash
This is the data set used for the report "Article processing charges (APCs) and subscriptions: Monitoring open access costs."
The data joins all existing COAF, Jisc, and RCUK APC data. The data processing steps were:
- De-deduplicating along DOI and title
- Filling in missing data fields using CrossRef and EPMC
- Using DOAJ to check if ISSN is Full OA or hybrid
- Converting currency where needed based on ForEx yearly averages
- Standardizing spellings, date formatting, etc.
One institution asked that their article-level data not be made publicly available, and therefore was excluded from this data set.
