Here some topics under discussion, on which best practices are hard to identify or yet to emerge.

  • What are the best practices for responding to the Elsevier policy allowing green OA except at institutions with OA mandates?
  • What are the best practices for responding to authors who want to withdraw an article from the repository, for example, because it is mistaken, embarrassing, or superseded by a newer version?


  • The guide is written by Stuart Shieber and Peter Suber, in consultation with a growing list of other experts. (For more details, see the Preface.
  • To suggest a revision, or discuss what it means to be listed as an endorsing organization, please contact Stuart or Peter directly.

///If we're open to recommending divergent practices on some points, say so here.
