New version of Jisc collections data (2013-2016) included into OpenAPC

Jisc Collections has been gathering and releasing data on APC payments made by UK higher education institutions (HEIs).

Following the publication of a new data set (2013-2016), OpenAPC has decided to replace all its existing Jisc collection data with the new version.

Since the data format employed by Jisc differs from the OpenAPC standard in several ways, a comprehensive pre- and postprocessing had to be conducted. The README in the Jisc data folder provides more details.

Cost data

The ingested data covers publication fees for 19,096 articles published by UK institutions (Since this ingestion replaces 10830 existing Jisc and 2109 existing Wellcome articles, the net increase is only 6157). Total expenditure amounts to 43 720 714€ and the average fee is 2 290€.

The following table and plots show a breakdown of the payments.
