Publisher Categories in RoMEO

English | Español | Magyar | Nederlands | Português  

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

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.

Associate Organisation [Organización asociada]

Definition: Society or organisation that assists a publishing house with editing and peer review, but which may not have copyright
[Not translated]
Case/E.g.: Publishing house declarations: 'Published in association with...', 'Edited by...'
[Not translated]
Guidance [Guía]: Ownership of copyright by the associate organisation is possible, but less likely than for a client organisation.
[Not translated]

University Publisher [Editorial Universitaria] (Academic Publisher, Academic Press, University Press)

Definition: A publishing house run by an educational institution. May publish on behalf of 3rd party organisations
[Not translated]
Case/E.g.: Liverpool University Press
Guidance [Guía]: 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.

Copublisher [Coeditor]

Definition: One of two or more publishers of any type who jointly publish a given journal.
[Not translated]
Case/E.g.: Evidence-Based Mental Health is copublished by the BMJ Publishing Group, the British Psychological Society, and the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
[Not translated]
Publishing house declarations: 'Co-published by...', 'Published jointly by...', 'Copyright x and y'
[Not translated]
Guidance [Guía]: 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.
