    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;A look at the data provided by the Open Access search engine BASE (http://base-search.net) shows that the Open Science compliance among dissertation theses stagnates. BASE knows three categories of accessibility: Open Access, Unknown, Non-Open Access. In the following tables and graphs, figures reported as &amp;quot;Open Access&amp;quot; have been categorised by BASE as Open Access. The tables and graphics show data from BASE (as of 06.03.2018) as follows:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;a) Indexed theses, books and journal articles&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;b) Indexed theses, books and journal articles published by Open Access&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;c) indexed theses, books and journal articles under Creative Commons licenses.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;d) indexed theses, books and journal articles, which are published under open licenses in the sense of the Open License, i. e. reflect terms of use of the Open Source.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Although doctoral theses already had a high share of open access by 2013 (43%), by 2017 it had risen by only 5% (2017:48%). At the same time, the proportion of books published in open access rose by 14% (from 20% to 34%) and articles by 17% from 44% (2013) to 61% (2017). The same effect can be seen in the proportion of CC-licensed items: Their share rose by 4% (from 9% to 13%) for doctoral theses, by 9% for books (from 4% to 13%) and 8% for articles (from 10% to 18%) between 2013 and 2017. However, the share of openly licensed items is most pronounced: it did not increase for doctoral theses, but remained at 2% between 2013 and 2017; in the same period it increased by 5% (from 1% to 6%) for books, and by 5% (from 5% to 10%) for articles.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
