Publisher Categories in RoMEO

English | Español | Magyar | Nederlands | Português  

These are the categories of publisher that are relevant to 'Bioscience'.

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.
