OA activity reflected by OpenDOAR

As an authoritative directory of academic open access repositories, OpenDOAR may sometimes reflect trends in OA activity.  For example, CRC staff have noticed an increase in the number of repositories in Turkey over the past year. This reflects both a national initiative to preserve its academic outputs launched by the Turkish Higher Education Council in 2014, and the requirement by OpenAIRE that a repository must be registered on OpenDOAR in order to be compliant.

If you are interested in exploring other repository trends, you will find the OpenDOAR charts dashboard helpful as it provides options to query a range of repository attributes.
