Online sharing of scholarly publications

OR: what can scholars do online with their papers and articles?

The excellent University of Notthingham’s SHERPA/RoMEO project helps answering the above question. Just go to the project website, search the journal (by title or ISSN) where you have published, and get “a summary of permissions that are normally given as part of each publisher’s copyright transfer agreement”.

By the way: SHERPA stands for “Securing a Hybrid Environment for Research Preservation and Access”, and RoMEO for “Rights MEtadata for Open archiving”.
