These are the first chemical abundance measurements for all but NGC 2447. We combined our clusters from this and previous papers with a sample drawn from the literature for which we remeasured the chemical abundances to establish a common abundance scale. With this homogeneous sample of OCs, we study the relative elemental abundances of stars in OCs in comparison with field stars as a function of age and metallicity. We find a range of mild enrichment of heavy (Ba-Eu) elements in young OC giants over field stars of the same metallicity. Our analysis supports that the youngest stellar generations in cluster might be underrepresented by the solar neighbourhood field stars. Description: Observations were carried out during observing runs in 2011 May and November, 2012 November and 2013 March using the Robert G. Tull echelle spectrograph (Tull et al. 1995PASP..107..251T) at the coude focus of the 2.7m Harlan J. Smith telescope located at the McDonald Observatory. On all occasions we employed a 2048x2048 24µm pixel, backside-illuminated, anti-reflection coated CCD as a detector and the 52.67 grooves/mm echelle grating with exposures centred at 5060Å.

Note (1): The integer component of the species ID indicates the atomic number, and the decimal component indicates the ionization state (0=neutral, 1=singly ionized). Note (2): All the lines are arranged in the order of their increasing LEP. Note (3): The EW given for the synthesized line (Mn I, Cu I, Ba II and Eu II, Ce II and Sm II) is the blend equivalent width.
