Portuguese Version of RoMEO Released
SHERPA Services is pleased to announce that a new Portuguese language version of its RoMEO database is now available at:
Both the interface captions and the RoMEO data itself have been translated from the original English by our colleagues in Project Blimunda that was commissioned by RCAAP initiative, Portugal. The new version is the first output from the partnership we announced in August.
We plan to release further language versions in the future. Please contact us if you are interested in any specific languages and would like to help with translations.
RoMEO is the key database of publisher's open access policies, used worldwide by repository administrators and academics to check their right self-archiving their publications.
RoMEO is currently funded by JISC. Journal information is kindly provided by: the British Library's Zetoc service hosted by MIMAS; DOAJ, a service from Lund University Libraries, and Entrez hosted by NCBI.
The RCAAP is an initiative of UMIC (Knowledge Society Agency), realised by FCCN (Foundation for National Scientific Computing), and Minho University. They commissioned the Documentation and Library Division, Faculty of Science and Technology, New University of Lisbon to run the Blimunda project.
