Recorded Metadata Re-use Policies - Worldwide

Total = 2565 repositories

OpenDOAR - 23-May-2018

Further Explanation of Metadata Re-use Policies

Unknown Metadata policies unknown
Unstated Metadata policies not stated
Undefined Metadata re-use policy explicitly undefined
No Rights All metadata re-use prohibited
Unclear Metadata re-use policy unclearly stated
Non-Profit Metadata re-use permitted for not-for-profit purposes
Commercial Commercial metadata re-use permitted

The first place we look for a repository's policies is its OAI-PMH Identify response (e.g. for Nottingham EPrints - http://eprints.nottingham.ac.uk/perl/oai2?verb=Identify). This often includes standard sections for policies. Alternatively, we look for a relevant web page in the repository - a special 'Policies' page or an 'About' page. We then analyse the policies using standard criteria, an assign a grade for each policy.

If we are unable to find any policy information at all, the status is set to 'Unknown'. If there is information on policies, but the particular policy is not covered, the status is set to 'Unstated'. In some cases, there may be a slot for the relevant policy, but all it says is 'not yet defined'. In these cases we set the status to 'Undefined'.
