Cross-Disciplinary Comparison of Open Access Levels, Publishing Practices and Barriers to Change
This Collection aims to provide literature for an evidence-based review of discipline-specific Open Access (OA) publishing practices, which manifest themselves in uneven shifts towards OA, both with regards to the overall prevalence of OA in scientific fields and in terms of adopted OA publishing practices. Particular focus will be placed upon the question of how different scientific disciplines adopt and shape OA publishing practices, aiming to identify barriers to and potentials for OA publishing in the different scientific disciplines.
