Hallo Elsabé
Many thanks for this. It would be great if these journals can also publish their policies with SHERPA RoMEO at http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeoupdate.php (Suggest a Publisher).
Kind regards

Subject: [Irtalk] A few South African journals' archiving policies & other Open access journals' information

Dear Colleagues

I recently had the opportunity to address South Africa editors at the 5th Annual Meeting of the National Scholarly Editors’ Forum of South Africa http://hdl.handle.net/2263/17000 arranged by the Academy of Science of South Africa. I requested editors to develop publisher copyright & self-archiving policies for institutional repository managers. A few of them responded and attached you will find the Archiving policies of the following journals:

African Invertebrates
International Institute for Religious Freedom
South African Actuarial Journal

The following journals are fairly new Open Access journals:
South African Journal of Economic and Management Sciences http://www.sajems.org<http://www.sajems.org/>
Journal of the South African Institution of Civil Engineering http://www.scielo.org.za/scielo.php?script=sci_serial&pid=1021-2019&lng=en&nrm=iso

The other Scielo South Africa Open access journals are available here: http://www.scielo.org.za/scielo.php?script=sci_alphabetic&lng=en&nrm=iso
The 41 South African journals available on DOAJ can be viewed here: http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=findJournals&hybrid=&query=south+africa

I will keep you updated if more editors respond - this still seems to be a major problem for most of us who are responsible for the archiving of journal articles in repositories! Some South African publishers and editors are still very reluctant to formulate a policy or communicate it.
