Hungarian Version of RoMEO Released

SHERPA is pleased to announce that a new Hungarian language version of its RoMEO database is now available at:

The RoMEO interface has already been translated into Hungarian, and our Hungarian partners HUNOR have started adding RoMEO data directly for Hungarian publishers and journals. Existing RoMEO data for other publishers is in the process of being translated.

We are grateful to our colleagues in HUNOR for translating the original English into Hungarian.

Portuguese and Spanish versions of RoMEO were released in 2010 and 2011 respectively, and SHERPA is working on further language versions for release in the future. Please contact us if you are interested in any specific languages and would like to help with translations.

About RoMEO

RoMEO is the key database of publisher's open access policies, used worldwide by repository administrators and academics to check their rights to self-archive their publications. RoMEO is currently funded by JISC. In addition to our own journals database, journal information is kindly provided by: the British Library's Zetoc service hosted by MIMAS; DOAJ, a service from Lund University Libraries, and Entrez hosted by NCBI.


The HUNOR (HUNgarian Open Repositories) consortium was established by the libraries of Hungarian higher education institutions and the Library of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences to advance national open access practices (

The members of HUNOR are dedicated to promoting Hungarian research both nationally and internationally and to achieving effective dissemination of scientific outputs through the implementation of a national infrastructure of open access repositories. Other activities include the operation of a methodology centre, adopting international know-how and standards, the establishment of complementary scientific communication channels, and international relations. HUNOR is coordinated by the National and University Library of University of Debrecen (
