There are 8 universities, 8 University Colleges and a number of other public and private research institutions in Denmark. The public research is organised under the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
The Ministry of Higher Education and Science manages and monitors the Danish Open Access strategy.
Denmark holds a National strategy for Open Access. The strategy states that the implementation of Open Access is to take place through the green model – i.e. parallel filling of quality-assured research articles in institutional or subject-specific archives (repositories) with Open Access.
