This paper not only suggests that at the level of individual countries, as the adoption of Open Access grows, the greater deployment of either Green or Gold Open Access models comes at a relative expense of the other model, but also that European countries are leading in the adoption of Green Open Access, whereas Asian countries predominantly opt for Gold Open Access with Americas tending to use both models but showing more presence in Green Open Access journals in the North and in Gold Open Access venues in the South.
