  "description": "<p>Following the Wellcome Trust, the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) makes its publication costs spent in 2013 (esp. for Open Access) publically available.</p>\n\n<p>An aggregated version of this dataset is already published in FWF&#39;s annual report 2013 (p. 86),</p>\n\n<p>The dataset includes payments for journal articles of authors funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) via the program &lsquo;Peer Reviewed Publications&rsquo;,</p>\n\n<p>The dataset distinguishes between three publication cost categories:</p>\n\n<p>(1) Gold Open Access and (2) Hybrid Open Access are defined by FWF&#39;s Open Access Policy, see:</p>\n\n<p>(3) &lsquo;Other publication costs&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).</p>\n\n<p>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.</p>\n\n<p>The analysis of this dataset together with the report &ldquo;Developing an Effective Market for Open Access Article Processing Charges&rdquo; ( will lead to an adaption of the FWF&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>",
