Develop, debate, innovate.

I just became aware of the Policies MELIBEA site via an email asking me to check/confirm the details they’ve got for Leicester’s institutional open access mandate (publication policy).  In colour and style the site very clearly aims to capture the SHERPA/RoMEO look, whereas its function is closer to ROARMAP; all be it providing a clearer overview of the details of each institution’s policy.

It’s an interesting development, although for those of us with mandates in place already I’m not immediately seeing  a major use for it.  On the other hand were I to be at an institution planning  a mandate, then I could see this would be a really handy tool to pick up what elements to make sure we included.
