Research Collection: Statistics May 2020

The open-access share for the year 2020 rose by 3% in May: the share was 38%. This is the highest open-access percentage ever recorded in our statistics. We hope, of course, that with your help we will be able to increase this proportion even further.

An excellent example of how open access can be achieved through the Green route is the following H2020 project (external link): POLTDES – Interacting polaritons in two-dimensional electron systems (external link). Almost 20 publications were published in May via the Green route. The project’s open-access proportion is already at 90%.

In the list of the top 5 countries, Switzerland is again in third place this month, after having completely disappeared from the list in April.
