New SHERPA/RoMEO Features

SHERPA runs RoMEO as a service to academic authors and repository
managers around the world to summarise publishers' policies and
copyright transfer agreements relating to open access archiving.

SHERPA is pleased to announce that it has added three new features to
its RoMEO service.  The RoMEO homepage now includes a 'News' section,
which has been added to help users stay up-to-date.

The 'Recently Added Publishers' section allows users to benefit from
being able to see the latest RoMEO additions at a glance.

RSS feeds are now available with the 12 latest additions to the RoMEO

In addition, this information is now available in the form of an email
alerting service.  If you would like to sign up for this service please
contact Jane H. Smith at jane.h.smith a nottingham.ac.uk.


RoMEO is an online service which allows users to search for publishers'
policies on self-archiving. Each entry is broken down into which
versions the author may deposit, the location of the deposit and any
attached conditions.

RoMEO is seen as an essential resource by many in the Open Access
community. RoMEO is funded by JISC and the Wellcome Trust. Journal
information is kindly provided by the British Library's Zetoc service
hosted by MIMAS.


The award winning SHERPA is based at the University of Nottingham and
works on a portfolio of projects related to Open Access and repository

SHERPA is a 33 member consortium of research-led universities within the
United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. SHERPA specialises in
promoting and advising on the development of open access repositories.
Other services developed by SHERPA include JULIET and OpenDOAR.
