The first place we look for a repository's policies is its OAI-PMH Identify response (e.g. for Nottingham EPrints - 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'.
