Peer Review Policy
Jisc has a range of open research services, some of which are used internationally: Sherpa Romeo, for publishers’ OA policies, IRUS-UK, which tracks institutional repository usage statistics, and Publication Router, which gathers information from content providers such as publishers, and passes it to institutions to help them capture their research articles onto their systems – such as their repositories or current research information systems (CRISs). Jisc Licensing negotiates with publishers on behalf of our members to get the best deals for publications. The UK ORCID consortium has become one of the most successful consortia, allowing institutions to get their researchers ORCID iDs at a discounted rate. As a new initiative, Jisc is working in collaboration with partners to develop Octopus, a new publication platform for primary research. Further information is available at
