Open Access Promotion Services
Open Access Promotion Services notify institutional repositories of information about articles by affiliated researchers, along with the journals' archiving policies that contain the articles. With this notification, institutional repository staff can easily check whether the articles can be made open access in institutional repository, thereby promoting open access effectively.
Make Articles by Affiliated Researchers Open Access in Institutional Repository
For institutional repository staff to make articles by affiliated researchers open access, it is necessary to investigate the publication status and archiving policies. The former requires searching the journal article databases, and the latter requires checking the homepages of the journals. Open Access Promotion Services automate these tasks and reduce the burden on institutional repository staff.
