Project RoMEO and Self-archiving Level – Underwater Echo
lkfitz's bookmarks 2016-11-23
"Online self-archiving is great way to realize open access and open science. By sharing their updated research work on different online platforms, the researcher (e.g. scientist and engineer) can get the maximum exposure while accelerating the development in certain field. For example, as an environmental engineer, I usually share my recent publication on Researchgate, which is an ideal platform for self-archiving and sharing knowledge. However, every time I try to upload my self-archived manuscript, Researchgate will pop up a window emphasizing the copyright issue. Interestingly, I find that the Researchgate adopts a SHERPA/RoMEO classification, offering explicit sharing and self-archiving levels for 2291 journals."
