How academics/ repository staff can help SHERPA FACT?

SHERPA FACT will interpret data from SHERPA RoMEO, JULIET and other sources to provide guidance to RCUK and Wellcome Trust funded authors on compliance with their Open Access (OA) policies and advise on the options available. Checking SHERPA FACT will be an integral part of the author compliance workflow and RCUK and the Wellcome Trust will be advising their funded authors to check SHERPA FACT for information on journal compliance and guidance on how to comply with their OA policies.

As part of this work we are currently reviewing and updating the policy information we hold in SHERPA RoMEO.

If you are aware of any changes to publisher policies, including their hybrid open access options, please let us know by using the ‘Suggest an Update for this Record’ button or e-mailing us on
