One important suggestion in this regard is to make the stored article
citable. A any academic institution with a good name can provide the
check needed to guarantee this status to any stored article. From
that point on, the link to the publisher, even if needed, loses
importance because the open nature of the article will steer users in
its direction. Of course, some persistent access means will also be

From: "Jeremy C. Shellhase" <jcs --
We're working to include more of our
faculty's published works in our instance of
dspace, Humboldt Digital Scholar, and wanted
to pose a couple questions about "best
practices" in complying with some of the
RoMEO green publishers requirements, before
we got too far along in the work.
SHERPA RoMEO "Green" is not quite the right category,
because it means "BOTH postprint-Green AND
preprint-Green" whereas what you should be covering is
postprint-Green, whether or not the publisher also
happens to be preprint-Green, and you should also look
carefully at the preprint Greens, because many of them
mean "postprint" (author's final refereed draft) even
though they say "preprint" (unrefereed draft) wrongly
thinking that "postprint" means publisher's PDF!
Publishers frequently ask for a link back to
their online presence with statements like:
* Must link to publisher version
* Must link to publisher version or
journal home page
* Must link to APA journal home page
We've looked in the metadata fields available
and cannot really find a perfect place for
this information and link. Has anyone set a
standard practice for this using metadata?
There should be an "other locations" field in DSpace, as
there is in EPrints. (If not, someone should quickly
That's the place to put the link to the publisher link.
The other option is to include this
information as a preliminary page added to
the actual submission, embedding the
information in the digital object itself. If
there are any other great ideas floating
around, we'd sure like to hear.
Yes, that's an option, and not bad as scholarly practice.
But since it entails more work for the author, and since
it's already like pulling teeth to get them to deposit,
it's probably more efficient to use the "other locations"
field in the IR interface.
Publishers frequently state that "Publisher
version cannot be used", allowing only the
author's pre or post refereeing drafts.
Well, as it turns out, many of the faculty
that have time to consider archiving their
legacy are emeritus or close to it and the
publications they're interested in archiving
no longer have a digital author's copy
available. We're stuck with how to proceed,
if indeed we can. Does scanning and OCRing a
printed copy of an article satisfy this
I agree completely with the previous reply by Shane Beers
below: Just "repurpose" the PDF or scanned OCR.

I've discussed this in past
dspace threads, but I'll mention
here. I frequently use a software
called ABBYY FineReader Pro
), which allows one to import an
existing PDF and re-purpose the
content. I've been thinking about
writing up a guide to using ABBYY
do this, but it's not difficult
to figure out, in my opinion.
Essentially you take the content
and de-select things like page
headers/footers/etc and create a
new PDF that uses the same
content, but does not contain any
publisher information. This
successfully side-steps that
issue, in my not-a-lawyer point
