Publisher Policies

It would be impractical to upload publisher policies for all publishers we run into and Sherpa/Romeo has a pretty good coverage of journal articles. Book publishers, might be more useful as there's no resource for this elsewhere.

Book publishers

There's a UKCORR List of publishers that allow OA here: http://ukcorr.org/2015/05/01/list-of-publishers-likely-to-permit-self-archiving-of-book-chapters-in-institutional-repositories/

Ashgate

Chapters

Ashgate ask you to contact the author in the first instance, so they can grant you permission. If they've given you the file then you should be able to make this live. http://www.ashgate.com/pdf/authors/Ashgate-Gower-reuse-policy-edited-books.pdf

Whole book

Their policy is unclear on whole books, but I think they've allowed it in the past. Best to contact them.
