Open Access share in Helmholtz increases to 81 %

The proportion of open access publications in Helmholtz continues to rise: 81 % of journal articles published from Helmholtz centers in the publication year 2021 are open access. This means that the goal of an OA quota for Helmholtz of at least 80 % by the end of 2022, which was decided in 2016, has been achieved. The open access rate of the Helmholtz centers is surveyed annually by the Helmholtz Open Science Office. The Helmholtz Open Science Policy describes future open access targets.
