National Open Access Monitor, Ireland Draft Report

  • 1. ROR icon OpenAIRE Non-Profit Civil Partnership


This draft report provides an initial assessment of Ireland's Open Access (OA) landscape, with a primary focus on a baseline analysis and data evaluation. It offers insights into the current state of OA in the country, emphasizing data quality and coverage, while also explaining the construction and methodological steps taken to construct the baseline analysis. In addition to these assessments, this draft also outlines the next steps for the OpenAIRE team and the optional strategies to be followed by key stakeholders to ensure accurate monitoring.

In the final version of the report, we will enhance this foundation by comprehensively addressing high-level infrastructure challenges. Our primary goal will be to provide practical, actionable recommendations for achieving continuous and robust OA monitoring in Ireland. The final report will offer a more extensive analysis, drawing upon additional insights gathered through further investigations.
