JISC project looks at academics' digital rights

Rights MEtadata for Open archiving (RoMEO) is a one year JISC funded project that will research ways in which the rights of academics over papers they "self-submit" to on-line repositories can be managed.

The vision of the academic process speeded up by practioners publishing their own work in online, standards compliant repositories has been around for a while. The traditional barrier has generally been the publishing industry's concerns over copyright, but the authors themselves also have an interest in what happens to work that they make available for free.

The RoMEO project looks at ways in which the rights under which academics self-publish can be properly recorded and tracked in repositories that support the Open Archives Initiative's Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). Other standards that will be looked at include the Open Digital Rights Language.

RoMEO is hither.
