This map show policies around the world which have been established in support of open education.  It includes open data from:

  • The Creative Commons OER Policy Registry
  • The Policies for OER Uptake (POERUP) wiki
  • The list of OER projects published by Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC)

Click on the node and title to see the full record including the policy.



  • L = Local/Institutional
  • R = Regional
  • N = National
  • I = International

We don’t distinguish between policies investing in OER development; policies in support of open licensing; and policies in support of open access – though this is a distinction we could make in future if the OER community might find it useful.

You can send us details of policies for inclusion on the map here.
