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to authors who want to withdraw an article from the repository, for example, because it is mistaken, embarrassing, or superseded by a newer version?


///Here we should explain who wrote the guide, who decides what counts as a best practice (including whether to accept suggested revisions), how others may submit suggestions, and how others may join the group making editorial decisions.

///Here we should also explain how an organization may add its name to the group endorsing the guide and what that means for decisions about future revisions.

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