The National Open-Access-Monitor provided by the Central Library of the Research Center Jülich offers opportunities for analyses of publications, costs and citations with regard to Open Access in Germany. Currently, data concerning scientific articles marked by a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) are processed. The sources comprise i.a. the Web of Science and the database Dimensions.
Chemnitz University Library makes use of this monitor for the analysis of Open-Access publication numbers and costs but also for the assessment of the market and the allocation of costs between the different publishers. The results are of significant importance for the calculation of the Publication Fund of Chemnitz University of Technology, the conclusion of transformation contracts with publishers and the application for funding resources.
