The Open APC initiative releases datasets on fees paid for open access journal articles by universities and research institutions under an open database license. Open APC, which is also supported by the DINI Working Group Electronic Publishing is part of the INTACT project and located at Bielefeld University Library. The datasets demonstrate transparent and reproducible reporting and allow various cost analysis on fee-based open access publishing across institutions and publishers.

Open APC uses GitHub for aggregating data provided by universities and research institutions, new contributions and changes will also be displayed on the INTACT Blog.
