OA analytics provides bibliometric indicators about the development of open access publishing in universities and institutes of major research organizations (Fraunhofer Society, Helmholtz Association, Leibniz Association and Max Planck Society) in Germany. OA analytics is located at Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies of Science (I²SoS) of Bielefeld University. I²SoS is member of the German Competence Centre for Bibliometrics.

Within the project a special dataset was built: ISSN-GOLD-OA, providing a matching list of ISSN for Gold Open Access (OA) journals. The intention was to compile a matching table as complete as possible by using different publicly available sources. The dataset can help to clear various ISSN-related issues in bibliometric studies on Gold OA.
