Research Data Sharing

Recognizing the critical role of research data in advancing open science and research integrity, STM, DataCite and Crossref have joined forces to issue a joint statement aimed at guiding the scholarly community in effective research data sharing. This is an update to the Joint Statement from STM and DataCite from 2012, recognizing that there has been significant progress since — but also that there is still much work to do.

Publishers have worked to rapidly expand opportunities to publish OA by providing new pathways to publish, developing new business models, and facilitating other collaborations and initiatives that support Open Science. To this end, STM developed an OA Dashboard that can be explored and used as a resource for all those seeking to learn more about these developments and better understand patterns of uptake by county and discipline, as well as by funder. This dashboard is based on analysis of data from Scopus, Elsevier, ESAC initiative and the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) and will be updated annually each October.

The dashboard tells us that;

  • Gold OA is leading progress toward universal OA — and is increasingly available as an option to authors,
  • Authors are increasingly choosing Gold,
  • While Gold is growing, Green and Bronze have generally maintained pace with total global article growth; and
  • Subscription-only is barely growing at all

As you spend time with the Dashboard, we also encourage you to share it more broadly with fellow stakeholder communities. To facilitate this sharing, we have provided the assets below.

STM has recently launched a new Open Access Dashboard which provides data on OA and the publishing industry. Explore statistics on OA uptake by scholarly discipline, by country and by funder; drill into data regarding transformative agreements and the number of published articles covered by such arrangements by country. See what’s inside >>


Gold is, by far, the dominant type of open access (OA)

 …granting immediate public access to more than a million articles, constituting 35% of all scholarly articles, reviews and conference papers globally in 2022.  Gold has been widely embraced by the research community because it delivers the Version of Record to maintain quality and research integrity and represents a sustainable and scalable means to deliver publishing services.

The opportunity to publish gold Open Access has increased rapidly.

In 2012, 34% of global articles , reviews, and conference papers either were or could have been published as gold OA articles. This figure rose to 79% by 2022, a difference of 45%.

Authors are increasingly choosing gold OA when it is offered.

In 2012, 26% of publications for which the author was offered the gold route were published gold; by 2022, this figure had risen to 45%.
