We are delighted to announce our latest event:  SHERPA/RoMEO for Publishers, on the 20th July 2011, at BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, London. Registration is Free of Charge

This one day  event will bring together the repository and  publisher communities to open a fruitful dialogue, allowing both perspectives to be examined aiming at reaching a new understanding and more productive relationship going forward.

The day will provide an overview of open access, and summarise the issues for publishers and learned societies. It will outline the way repository managers use RoMEO to obtain publisher copyright information and the importance to everyone of that information being accurate; it will also introduce ways in which RoMEO can help publishers optimise their policies for their chosen business model.

The day will include sessions on:

·        Publishers perspective of Open Access and benefits of working with RoMEO

·         Repository administrator’s perspective of interpreting publisher policies

·         An introduction to the RoMEO policy generation tool

A free lunch and refreshments will be provided.
