Publisher Categories in RoMEO

English | Español | Magyar | Nederlands | Português  

These are the categories of publisher that are relevant to 'Nutrition Reviews'.

In general, the lowest category in the list below takes priority regarding copyright and policies.

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

Former Publisher (Previous Publisher)

Definition: A Publishing organisation of any variety that has relinquished ownership to another publisher
Case/E.g.: Ownership of Practical Neurology passed from Wiley-Blackwell to BMJ Publishing
Guidance: May publish on behalf of ministries or departments which have their own rights and policies

University Publisher (Academic Publisher, Academic Press, University Press)

Definition: A publishing house run by an educational institution. May publish on behalf of 3rd party organisations
Case/E.g.: Liverpool University Press
Guidance: University publishers often operate the same was as commercial publisher, but are owned and controlled by an academic institution. They may just publish journals from their own institution. They may also publish journals on behalf of learned societies and similar client organisations. Client organisations usually retain their rights.

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.
