Open Access Archiving: JISC Announces New Sherpa Romeo Service Enhancement: Browse by Country

From a JISC Announcement:

As part of Open Access week, we would like to take the opportunity to announce a Sherpa Romeo [“a summary of publishers’ open access archiving conditions for individual journals”] service enhancement that allows users to ‘Browse by Country’. You can find this new feature on our our ‘Search’ page alongside the ‘Browse by Publisher’ button


Increase in the Listing of Publications From South America

Our new Browse by Country function makes it easy to identify trends in our listing of publications across the globe. From February 2020 to October 2020, the team has significantly increased the coverage of publications from countries in South America. In February 2020, Sherpa Romeo contained 582 publications from South American countries. The team has been busy with requests for new listings and the number has now increased by 8.78% to 633 publications in October 2020.
