Wellcome Trust open access (OA) spend and compliance monitoring: 2013-14
Wellcome Trust OA spend for the 2013-2014 year. In addition to simply reporting spend, this year we have run the data through a “compliance monitoring” tool (developed for us by Cottage Labs) to help us determine programmatically whether the paper is in the Europe PMC repository and what licence (if any) is attached to the article.
The dataset only includes information when an APC was levied. If an author has self-archived a paper, or the publisher provides a gold OA service (but makes no charge), this information is not included in this dataset.
Equally, data are not included in cases where a researcher (based at an institution not in receipt of an OA block grant) received a supplement to their grant to cover OA publishing costs.
