Abstract: The aim of this paper is to analyze the current state of policies in favour of open access (OA) applied by Spanish universities. Five major mechanisms of intervention for pursuing OApolicies were used to analyze and evaluate the situation: infrastructure and services; information and dissemination; economic incentives; institutional coordination; and regulation or obligation. Data collection was based on a questionnaire sent to the vice-rectors for research ofall Spanish universities. This information was supplemented by consulting directories of repositories, Spanish scientific journals, and institutional OA policies. The application of OA policies varies greatly. Spanish universities can be classified into five groups according to th number and quality of the actions taken. The first includes 7 universities (9% of the total) that have a comprehensive OA policy. The second includes 12 universities (16%) with a clear policy. The third includes 17 universities (23%) with an ongoing policy. The fourth includes 17 universities (23%) that have taken one or two actions and therefore have an incipient policy. Finally, the fifth group includes 21 universities (28%) that have taken no actions to favour OA.
