Welcome to the Open Educational Resources (OER) Policy Registry, a database of current and proposed open education policies from around the world. Here, anyone can easily share, update, and browse open education policies and legislation. In addition, we host supporting policy resources such as case studies and guides.

The OER Policy Registry is being upgraded and migrated away from the CC Wiki.


We define OER policies as legislation, institutional policies, and/or funder mandates that lead to the creation, increased use, and/or support for improving OER. This registry is not a list of open projects, terms of use, or a registry of open access policies.

We have begun to enter OER policies into the registry, but we need your help to make it a truly useful global resource. Sharing our collective knowledge of existing OER policies, in the same way we believe in sharing educational resources, will help advocates and policymakers further open policies worldwide. Note: This page will regularly refresh and display newly added open policies. If you wish to refresh the list immediately, please click here.
