The number of Open Access publications in university repositories is steadily increasing. This trend could be related to the sustained awareness-raising initiatives and training sessions organised by the universities.
All universities have an Open Access repository with an Immediate Deposit/Optional Open Access (ID/OA) Mandate, and they regularly organise in-house training sessions on Open Access. Some universities already have research data management strategies and plans in place.
According to ROARMAP, 17 institutions and funders have an open access mandate in Belgium.
