Type: Reports/Research Reports
Author: Neil Butcher
Year of Publishing: 2013
Keywords: OER policy, Government level, OER

This policy template provides an outline of various issues pertinent to creating an OER policy at government level, combined with samples of wording that might be used to frame country policies on OER. This wording is not intended to be prescriptive, but rather to provide practical guidance on the potential scope of coverage of policy statements. Whilst this document can be used as a template for a distinct OER policy, the various issues presented might also be incorporated into existing national policies, to ensure that they make specific provision for OER.
