Toolkit of Open Access Policy Resources
COAPI members share best practices in OA policy advocacy and implementation with each other by email, phone, and face-to-face meetings. In addition to this informal sharing, COAPI hosts a toolkit of resources for its members. This toolkit includes templates, FAQs, documentation, and other items shared by COAPI members.

- Guidelines for Contributors (public toolkit)
- Links to External Resources
