Commentary by Stephen Downes

The RoMEO Project (Rights MEtadata for Open archiving) was launched in August to investigate rights issues surrounding the self-archiving of research in the UK academic community. "It will perform a series of stakeholder surveys to ascertain how 'give-away' research literature (and metadata) is used, and how it should be protected. Building on existing schemas and vocabularies (such as Open Digital Rights Language) a series of rights elements will be developed. A demonstrator system will then be created to show how rights metadata might be assigned, disclosed, harvested, and displayed to end users via the OAI Protocol for Metadata Harvesting."
