TU Delft published 98% of the peer reviewed articles in 2022 open access.
For the 9th time, the open access monitor was conducted for TU Delft by the Research Support team. The reporting was done using the current definitions of the national framework OA monitoring. Stronger than in all previous years, the share of open access has grown within TU Delft, both for peer reviewed articles and conference proceedings. The main cause lies in the strong growth of the share of green open access which has received a strong impulse since the TU Delft Short Scientific Work Regulations.
The basis of the count is the peer reviewed articles registered in PURE that were published in 2022. There were 4.411 articles found in PURE in 2022 compared to 4.500 articles in 2021. The decrease can be explained by the fact that in the TU Delft Data Warehouse the document type ‘conference article’ has been categorized as ‘conference proceeding’ where previously it was categorized as ‘journal article’ (where the conference articles were then published in a journal)
