Publisher Categories in RoMEO

English | Español | Magyar | Nederlands | Português  

These are the categories of publisher that are relevant to 'Automatic Documentation and Mathematical Linguistics / Nauchno-Tekhnicheskaya Informatsiya, Seriya 2: Informatsionnye Protsessy i Sistemy'.

In general, the lowest category in the list below takes priority regarding copyright and policies. This is not clear and certain, however, for 'Client organisations' and 'Associate organisations'.

It gets complicated when there are more than two levels involved.

Client Organisation

Definition: Society or organisation whose journals are published for them by a publishing house
Case/E.g.: Publishing house declarations: 'Published on behalf of...', 'Journal of the ...'
Guidance: Copyright probably held by the client organisation, but not certain. If the publishing house does not allow you to archive, you could contact the client organisation. RoMEO gives the policies of client organisations where known. Otherwise it gives the policies of their publishing house.

Copublisher

Definition: One of two or more publishers of any type who jointly publish a given journal.
Case/E.g.: Evidence-Based Mental Health is copublished by the BMJ Publishing Group, the British Psychological Society, and the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
Publishing house declarations: 'Co-published by...', 'Published jointly by...', 'Copyright x and y'
Guidance: Often, the journal uses the policies of only one of the copublishers (see 'Primary Copublisher'). Where the situation is unclear, we try to display the more liberal policy. Firstly we select by RoMEO colour in the order Green, Blue, Yellow, and White. If necessary, we then use a weighted algorithm that tries to identify the policy that permits archiving of the most recent version of an article.

Copyright Holder

Definition: Publisher(s) declared as copyright holder(s)
Case/E.g.: Explicit statements - 'Copyright [year] [Name]', 'Owned by...'
Guidance: The policies of the copyright holder take priority over the policies of any other organisations involved in the publication of a journal. Where there are two or more copyright holders, we try to display the more liberal policy. Firstly we select by RoMEO colour in the order Green, Blue, Yellow, and White. If necessary, we then use a weighted algorithm that tries to identify the policy that permits archiving of the most recent version of an article.
