The publication contains national reports, along with general conclusions, the Alhambra Declaration, and several appendices which offer more detailed information on journals and repositories in each of the countries.  

The report is addressed especially to authorities and academic managers, to make them aware of the importance of encouraging actions to promote open access to science; to publishers, especially those of the public sector, to make them aware of the benefits of the open access model and to encourage them to adopt it; to academics; and to library professionals, who have played a significant role in the movement for the free dissemination of knowledge and must continue to do so.
