Procedures for participation in PEER project released

The PEER (Publishing and the Ecology of European Research) project has released its Guidelines for publishers and repository managers on deposit, assisted deposit and self-archiving. The document details the procedures for participating publishers and repositories.

Comment. One point about the project which wasn't clear to me before is that even the publisher deposits will be of the author's manuscript, not the final published version.
