Open Access: OA Policies

An overview of open access (OA) basics and resources and open content resources.

Open Access Policies

  • MELIBEA - A searchable directory of institutional open access policies designed to identify and analyze the existing policies that encourage, request or require open access to scholarly outputs that arise from projects, in whole or in part, supported by public funds.
  • RightsStatements.org - "provides a set of standardized rights statements that can be used to communicate the copyright and re-use status of digital objects to the public. Our rights statements are supported by major aggregation platforms such as the Digital Public Library of America and Europeana. The rights statements have been designed with both human users and machine users (such as search engines) in mind and make use of semantic web technology."
