Abstract
  • Using data from 2020, this report is the third annual update to the “State of Open at the University of Colorado Boulder: A Baseline Analysis of Open Access Practices from 2012 to 2018”: https://doi.org/10.25810/vprn-v113. It includes analyses of open access (OA) article publishing activities, OA repository usage, and data publishing practices by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder). Due to the availability of new data sources, a repository software migration, and effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the numbers in this report look quite different from past years. Explanations of these differences are provided in each respective section of the report. Data used to produce this report can be found here: https://doi.org/10.25810/x8nq-tb51

    Key findings from this report include:

    60.13% of articles published in 2020 by CU Boulder authors are available via some type of OA (Gold, Green, Hybrid, or Bronze);

    In 2020, the CU Boulder Libraries OA Fund funded author fees totaling $57,768.76 for 34 journal articles published by CU Boulder authors in full OA journals (reasons for the decline from $100,588.42 for 65 articles in 2019 are explained in detail in the report);

    At the end of 2020, there were 11,810 OA items in the CU Scholar institutional repository, and these items were downloaded a total of 43,236 times in 2020;

    In the annual Faculty Report of Professional Activities (FRPA), faculty reported 65 published data sets in 2020 (same as 2019) with 50 of these citations including Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) (up from 44 in 2019) and 54 citations identifying a formal data repository (down slightly from 56 in 2019);

    The Libraries and its partners registered 320 DataCite DOIs for published data sets in 2020 (up from 197 in 2019).
