Open Access compliance: how publishers can help

This document describes some things that publishers might do, that would help authors and institutions implement OA in the UK (and probably elsewhere) with reduced administrative burden, taking some of the friction out of the current arrangements. It has been collated through discussions with Jisc and those implementing OA in UK universities, and we acknowledge considerable assistance from RLUK members and others in this work. It is our best attempt to collate these desiderata; while we acknowledge that this is a fast-changing area, we hope we have crystallised some steps that publishers could take that would have lasting benefit for their customers. This document does not suggest that compliance with OA policies is anything other than the responsibility of those covered by those policies, mainly researchers and their institutions.
