Offsetting Dataset

 

Open APC set up a dedicated data set comprising articles published under offsetting deals. Currently, article data from the Springer Compact agreements is collected, others will follow.

Unlike in the main Open APC data set, there is currently no price information included due to the fact that those type of agreements still operate with lump sums and reading fees. This would therefore lead to a biased picture in terms of individual spending per article.

However, the collection is, among other purposes, relevant in view of the discussion on differentiated article prices, since it provides insights about the allocation of offsetting publications over a publisher’s journal portfolio and it allows predictions on the popularity of journals among researchers.
