This article is the fourth in a series of six emanating from the UK JISC‐funded RoMEO Project (Rights Metadata for Open archiving). It describes an analysis of 80 scholarly journal publishers' copyright agreements with a particular view to their effect on author self‐archiving: 90% of agreements asked for copyright transfer and 69% asked for it prior to refereeing the paper; 75% asked authors to warrant that their work had not been previously published although only two explicitly stated that…

Copyright compliance and infringement in ResearchGate full-text journal articles
TLDR
Investigation of ResearchGate members as authors of journal articles found that authors infringe copyright most of the time not because they are not allowed to self-archive, but because they use the wrong version, which might imply their lack of understanding of copyright policies and/or complexity and diversity of policies.
Copyright compliance and infringement in ResearchGate full-text journal articles

RoMEO studies 5: IPR issues facing OAI data and service providers

The IPR issues facing self-archiving: key findings of the RoMEO Project
TLDR
An overview of all the activities of the RoMEO project is provided, which aimed to develop simple rights metadata by which academics could protect their research papers in an open-access environment and also to develop a means by which OAI Data and Service Providers could protection their open- access metadata.
