For research products, this refers to the affiliated organizations of its authors
For projects: the organizations participating in the project (i.e. beneficiaries of the grant)
We are improving the organization database with the use of our OpenOrgs tool. It allows curators to disambiguate organizations (merge different names of the same organization) and identify parent-child relationships (schools, departments, etc.).
The country of the organization.

Open: Open Access
Embargo: Closed for a specific period of time, then open.
Restricted: Definition of restricted may vary by data source, it may refer to access rights being given to registered users, potentially behind a paywall.

The different data sources ingested in the OpenAIRE Research Graph.
A journal that publishes only in open access.
We follow Unpaywall’s approach on defining fully Open Access journals and publishers and we construct the lists of the latter using Unpaywall data.
In brief, a journal is fully Open Access if one or more of the following occur:
A journal that charges for access to its articles.
Journals without any open access articles.
A subscription journal where some of its articles are open access.
Journals with open access articles that are not fully OA journals.
"A Transformative Journal is a subscription/hybrid journal that is actively committed to transitioning to a fully Open Access journal.
In addition, a Transformative Journal must:
Source: Plan S initiative
We identify Transformative Journals by ISSN matching with the publicly available Transformative Journals data from Plan S initiative.
A fully OA journal that does not charge article processing charges (APCs).
In other words, fully OA journals are either diamond, or charge APCs.
We obtain APC data from DOAJ using DOAJ’s Public Data Dump (an exportable version of the journal metadata). We used it to determine whether a particular fully OA journal charges APCs.
An open access scientific publication deposited in a repository
As in definition
A scientific publication published in a fully OA journal.
We define fully OA journals above.
An open access scientific publication published in a hybrid journal with an open license.
We define hybrid journals above.
At this point we consider only CC licenses “open”. We are currently working on cleaning non-CC licenses as well to identify other open ones.
In principle, this means that we may be underestimating the number of hybrid OA articles and overestimating the number of bronze.
An open access scientific publication published in a hybrid journal without an open license.
The number of downloads of a publication’s full text in a specific time frame, from a given set of data sources.
We utilize the usage data for the downloads from OpenAIRE’s Usage Counts service that harvests it from a set of datasources. The time range of available downloads varies for each datasource.
