The recommendations include an open access flag that can be yes/no.  The ODI recommendations should be aligned here with the requirements of the Open Access metadata NISO group. It’s currently in progress but the drafted requirements will contain a “free for read” tag on article level and a license ref tag with a URL to the re-use license. The latter could be part of the enhanced metadata but I recommend that the “free for read” tag is a basic metadata requirement.

Submitter Proposed Solution

Revise requirements for the Open Access flag to align with the NISO Open Access metadata group.
