An Analysis of Open Science Policies in Europe v4

SPARC Europe; Digital Curation Centre

This document presents an updated review of Open Data and Open Science policies in Europe as of July 2019. It does not include Open Access to publications policy. This analysis goes more into depth on the types of policy in place in Europe, their processes of creation, and some of their specifics. This updated version of the deeper analysis reflects changes that have been identified between November 2018 and July 2019. We concentrate on the twenty-eight EU member states, but we also consider relevant countries from the European Research Area, namely Iceland, Norway, Serbia and Switzerland.

This report is the the fourth version of a report which was originally published in 2017.
