TRANSFER Code of Practice
On Monday September 22, 2008 UKSG (www.uksg.org) announced that following extensive consultation Version 2.0 of the Transfer Code of Practice has been released.
The TRANSFER Code of Practice responds to the expressed needs of the scholarly journal community for consistent guidelines to help publishers ensure that journal content remains easily accessible by librarians and readers when there is a transfer between parties, and to ensure that the transfer process occurs with minimum disruption.
Publishers are being asked to publicly endorse and follow the Code of Practice which is a set of voluntary "best practices" for the industry.
