The 2022 Open Science Monitor of the University of Strasbourg

The open science barometer measures the progress of the openness of scientific publications produced by the University of Strasbourg from open access data. It is fully in line with the University of Strasbourg's open science policy.

Page contents

73.55% of Unistra scientific publications with a Crossref DOI published in 2021 were open in 2022 (+2.52%)
At the national level, this indicator is equal to 67% (end of March 2023)


This barometer is derived from the French Open Science Barometer (BSO), published since 2019 by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. It measures the evolution of open access to publications in France or in an institution.
The present Unistra barometer benefits from the evolutions brought by the version 3 of the national BSO officially released on March 13, 2023.

The contributions of this new version are the following :

  • Taking into account of theses (extracted from the national catalog)
  • Taking into account of new types of documents (beta version) :
    • Datasets
    • Codes and software
  • Taking into account of the data without DOI (replaced by the identifier HAL or theses)

These evolutions take more into account the publications of humanities and social sciences (it was a limit of the previous versions of the BSO)

Note that some of these evolutions are in beta version (this is indicated at the head of the graph)

Data sources

For the barometer of the University of Strasbourg, the data sources used are the Web of Science, HAL, PubMed and and


The previous source extractions were performed between March 15 and 22, 2023.

  •     Therefore, the latest observation year is 2022.
  •     The first publication year is 2016 (2013 for dissertations)
  •     The first observation year is 2018

The resulting file had :

  •     35 117 publications with DOI
  •     18 501 publications (or other type) without doi but with a HAL identifier
  •     (The number of theses is 4 047 over the period 2016-2021)

This file of identifiers and codes is then uploaded to the national site. After enriching the data, the institutions recover the codes of the graphs and comments obtained (iframes) by indicating their identifier for integration on their own site (130005457 for Unistra).

Enriched data are available in csv and jsonl formats here :

jsonl file contains all history data (OA status for each DOI and for each observation date)

Next update

Spring 2024 (the last year of observation will be 2023)
