Abstract:Open access is an important part of scholarly communication, and it has been a global phenomenon. The growth of open access brings several signif-icant benefits to the general public as well as researchers, ultimately leads to the advancement of science. For the continuous growth and development of open access, it is necessary to measure the degree of maturity of open ac-cess. However, there is not much discussion about the assessment frame-work for open access. This study aims to propose an assessment framework of open access maturity. For the purpose of this study, we conducted an analysis with a total of 24 literatures relevant to the digital maturity, the ma-turity of open data/open science, and major open access initiatives. For digi-tal maturity, 18 articles were analyzed: 10 articles for generic purpose model, and 8 articles for industry-specific model. In addition, three articles on the maturity of open data/open science were analyzed and three major open ac-cess initiatives. In preliminary analysis results, three dimensions with 13 be-longing items were proposed for measuring the maturity of open access. Three dimensions are OA Policy, OA capability, and Openness quality. For OA policy, there are three items such as OA policy document, OA govern-ance, and OA strategy. For OA Capability, finance for OA, people for OA, culture for OA, and collaboration for OA are proposed. For Openness Quali-ty dimension, six items are suggested: submission and review, author rights, user rights, findability, accessibility, and monitoring.
