Publishers and universities have issued proposals for achieving the
requirements of the OSTP mandate.
The proposals leverage different existing infrastructures. Publishers want
to use their existing systems,
but build a portal of shared metadata that links to distributed journal
websites for access to the full
text; the version is ambiguous. Universities want to federate existing
institutional and disciplinary
repositories, distributing both metadata and access to peer-reviewed author
manuscripts. The
publishers’ proposal is not as detailed as the universities’ proposal,
particularly in regard to providing
the mandated functionality, the licensing required to allow it, and the
formats required to enable it
