    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Following the Wellcome Trust, the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) makes its publication costs spent in 2013 (esp. for Open Access) publically available.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;An aggregated version of this dataset is already published in FWF&amp;#39;s annual report 2013 (p. 86),;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The dataset includes payments for journal articles of authors funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) via the program &amp;lsquo;Peer Reviewed Publications&amp;rsquo;,;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The dataset distinguishes between three publication cost categories:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;(1) Gold Open Access and (2) Hybrid Open Access are defined by FWF&amp;#39;s Open Access Policy, see:;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;(3) &amp;lsquo;Other publication costs&amp;rsquo; are defined as additional costs to subscription prices charged by subscription journals (i.e. submission fees, colour charges, page charges, figure charges, table charges, supplemental charges).&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Based on this data and the data of Web of Science (WoS), we roughly estimate for 2013 a share for Gold and Hybrid OA of around 33% of all articles (incl. reviews) that result from projects supported by the FWF and which are listed in Web of Science.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The analysis of this dataset together with the report &amp;ldquo;Developing an Effective Market for Open Access Article Processing Charges&amp;rdquo; ( will lead to an adaption of the FWF&amp;rsquo;s Open Access policy within the next months. One model, for example, for a cost-neutral Hybrid Open Access is already in place:;/p&gt;</description>
