Glasgow Caledonian University’s policy is published under a creative commons license and draws on the framework established by the University of Leeds in 2012.

You can read a case study about developing GCU's open education policy.

University staff from across Scotland have contributed to the The Scottish Open Education Declaration which also draws on policy recommendations developed by the POERUP Project in their Country Option Pack for Scotland.
