About FACT


SHERPA FACT is a Jisc service that combines and interprets data from SHERPA RoMEO, SHERPA Juliet and other sources to provide clear guidance to researchers on whether a journal they wish to publish in complies with Research Councils UK (RCUK), Wellcome Trust and Charity Open Access Fund (COAF) open access policies, and offers advice on available options.


This service is currently aimed at authors funded by Research Councils UK and the Wellcome Trust, to provide clear guidance on compliance with their Open Access (OA) policies and advice on the options available.
