  • Quantify and identify the proportion of sources having open access copies available
  • (stretch) release a dataset to facilitate volunteer contributions towards complementing DOI citations with accessible versions of the same papers

Accessibility has multiple dimensions.

Those that are most relevant in this context are probably

  • language (P407)
  • online vs. offline (perhaps via P953 in conjunction with things like P1065 and P2960)
  • paywalls (kinda covered by P953 as well)
  • licensing (P275)

and perhaps file formats and other kinds of metadata.

Hi Daniel

and perhaps file formats and other kinds of metadata.

Agreed, this first stab at the question will only work at what's available from the Unpaywall dataset, combined with topic modeling.
