SHERPA FACT checks if compliance with funder open access policies can be achieved with a particular journal.
SHERPA FACT is an online resource that combines and interprets data from SHERPA RoMEO, SHERPA Juliet and other sources to provide clear guidance to researchers on whether a journal they wish to publish in complies with Research Councils UK (RCUK), Wellcome Trust and Charity Open Access Fund (COAF) open access policies, and offers advice on available options.
SHERPA RoMEO enables researchers and librarians to see publishers’ conditions for open access archiving on a journal-by-journal basis.
SHERPA RoMEO is an online resource that aggregates and analyses publisher open access policies from around the world and provides summaries of self-archiving permissions and conditions of rights given to authors on a journal-by-journal basis.
OpenDOAR, which enables the identification, browsing and search for repositories. is also in the SHERPA services family.
Our new SHERPA REF beta service helps authors and institutions decide whether a journal allows them to comply with the OA REF policy. We launched this service in beta in March 2016. You can start using SHERPA REF now and we're looking for your feedback in order to help us improve it.
