The Open Access Licenses and Agreements Task
Force<http://www.coar-repositories.org/activities/repository-content/licenses-task-force/>
is
pleased to announce the release of a new
report<http://www.coar-repositories.org/files/OA-Clauses-in-Publishers-Licenses.pdf>
, *Open Access Clauses in Publishers' Licenses: Current State and Lessons
Learned*. The report presents the results of a review of licenses that
secure the rights for authors and/or their institutions to deposit
published articles into an OA repository.****

As Open Access (OA) policies and laws are being adopted world-wide, the
scholarly community is shifting its efforts from advocacy towards practical
implementation and support. One of the major routes for making articles
open access is through OA repositories. However the variety and lack of
clarity of publishers’ policies regarding article deposit can be a
significant barrier to author compliance of OA policies.****

In order to overcome this barrier, some organizations have successfully
negotiated authors' or deposit rights with publishers in the context
of purchasing content licenses. This report documents the existing OA
licensing language that has been implemented by organization around the
world and presents some suggestions for their successful adoption. The
report concludes that OA clauses offer a feasible option for institutions
to address some of the obstacles to article deposit into repositories.****

Shearer<kathleen.shearer a coar-repositories.org>,
Executive Director, Confederation of Open Access Repositories. ****
