Recommendations for Implementation of Open Access in Denmark: Final Report from the Open Access Committee
The Danish Agency for Libraries and Media and Denmark's Electronic Research Library have released Recommendations for Implementation of Open Access in Denmark: Final Report from the Open Access Committee.
Here's an excerpt:
The consultation process about the Open Access Committee’s recommendations indicated wide support for the principle of open access to publicly funded research. There is an express desire for research results from a small country such as Denmark to become as visible as at all possible, nationally as well as internationally. Barriers to access must therefore be broken down, and this would contribute to ensuring that Denmark remains an interesting partner internationally. It is therefore the recommendation of the Open Access Committee that as far as possible there should be Open Access to the results of publicly funded research via green Open Access with built-in quality assurance in the form of peer review by the scientific journals. This means that research articles, after a peer review process in the existing journal system, will be published in parallel in an institutional or subject specific repository, to which there will be open access. This parallel publishing could be put into practice with a limited deferred period, during which the articles would solely be accessible in the journals.
