Sharing the results of publicly funded research

Visualisations of OA Policies that offer APC grants

May 21, 2015 in PASTEUR4OA, Projects

As mentioned previously Open Knowledge are project partners on the PASTEUR4OA Project. To compliment our briefing paper work we will be creating a series of Data Visualisations that will be available online and a series of infographics that can be used in advocacy materials. These visualisations will build on data from ROARMAP – a registry of OA policies.

I am no expert in data visualisation and am very much learning as I go along. I hope to share my experiences in creating the visualisations later down the line. Today I have been working with Tableau Public and have produced a number of different visualisations. With APCs in mind (you may have seen the APC timeline we have been collating) here is an attempt at a visualisation of Open Access Policies (by country) that offer some form of APC grant.

Any feedback welcome – I’m still learning so please be gentle!
