The UK JISC-funded RoMEO Project is pleased to announce that the first
version of their listing of academic journal copyright agreements is now
available from

The list provides information about 70 journal publishers self-archiving
policies.  Entries in green indicate that self-archiving is allowed.  The
Project would warmly welcome more copyright transfer agreements to add to
the list.  If you know of any (either recent printed copies or URLs) then
I'd be grateful if you could contact me.

A full analysis of the agreements will be available from the RoMEO project
in the new year.  In future the project hopes to work with the University of
Cincinnati's Academic Journal Policy Portal to provide searchable access to
this, and other related, information.
