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. However, the strategy does not exclude the use of the golden model as long as it does not increase the expenses for publication.
Two central principles form the basis for the strategy:
The goal is 100% Open Access to publicly funded research publications by 2025.
In February 2014 The Danish Rectors College, DeIC and DEFF etablished ”The Steering Group for National Data Management” with members appointed from Universities Denmark, the Danish Royal Library, The State and University Library and the Danish National Archives with the purpose to ensure that Denmark, in a collaboration between the prime stakeholders, got a national strategy for research data management.
The vision is to ensure Denmark a better and more competitive research through efficient collection, securing, dissimination and re-use of relevant research data.
The strategy was published in 2015 and is accessible on the website of DeIC - Danish e-Infrastructure Cooperation: National Strategy for Data Management.
DeiC is the Danish national participant in EOSC and EOSC Nordic.
The Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education has commissioned Oxford Research and Højbjerre Brauer Schultz to carry out a preliminary analysis of the potential for implementing FAIR data in Denmark. Read the report here: Preliminary analysis: Introduction of FAIR data in Denmark
Denmark has 8 major Institutions which are listed here:
Public Danish funders with an Open Access Policy:
Private Danish funders with an Open Access Policy:
One central national aggregator collects publication data from Danish universities primarily: Danish National Research Database.
The Ministry of Higher Education and Science maintaines an Open Access Indicator that monitors the Open Access progress in Denmark. It can be found here: Danish Open Access Indicator
Danish Data Repositories:
The Royal Library offers a service tidsskrift.dk which runs on the OJS platform.
Danish universities make agreements with publishers bilaterally, there are no national consortia agreements to publishing.
Some Danish universities are supporting Knowledge Unlatched, but no national consortia agreement is in place.
Each of the 8 Danish universities has their own local Open Science Support Unit, typically based at the university libraries.
DeiC is working on national structure for RDM support and training.
