Open Access: Sherpa Romeo

An Overview of Our Changing System of Scholarly Communication

What is Sherpa Romeo?

Sherpa Romeo is a free online tool provided by Jisc that allows you to search and understand the OA policies held by different publishers. While largely up to date, when a conflict arises between the information on the publisher's website and that on Sherpa Romeo the publisher's version is the correct one. Romeo uses a standard set of icons to explain different policies held by each publisher.
