Re-use of data, Content, Submission & Preservation The Tool Radio buttons, checkboxes, pick lists, pop-up boxes Recommendations From minimum OA compliance to best practice Output Options Plain text, HTML source code, etc


23 Displays any existing policy – if harvestable via OAI-PMH
Policies specified using a combination of radio buttons, check boxes, pop-up boxes, etc. Much automatic error checking to ensure vital items are not missed and that mutually contradictory options are not selected. OpenDOAR recommendations automatically check the relevant options for Minimal and Optimal policies.


25 Using SHERPA’s Tools The SHERPA site provides a rich set of tools to manage repositories Use OpenDOAR to set good policies for your new repositories Use JULIET to check if your authors are required to deposit Use RoMEO to check that authors are allowed to deposit their papers Remember – the majority of journals allow deposit – copyright concerns are not a barrier to open access!
