A Schema for Open Access policies | Jisc Scholarly Communications

Amsciforum 2015-11-30

Summary:

Internationally, there are now over seven hundred open access policies. Even just in the UK, key funder policies do not always align, making it possible that researchers who make their work openly available may meet some, but not all requirements. Greater clarity and, hopefully, convergence of policies will make open access easier to communicate, administer and achieve.’ – Torsten Reimer, Imperial College London

To achieve this goal, JiscSHERPA Services and ROARMAP* have jointly developed a Schema for Open Access policies. The proposed schema has evolved from an analysis of universities’ and funders’ OA policies as well as from an analysis of information recorded in OA databases. Fundamentally, the schema aims to encourage policymakers worldwide to express their policies in a consistent way.
