Registration is free, just follow the link provided.


University of Southampton/EPrints is launching a week-long Open Access Mandate Adoption Challenge for OA Week. Representatives of universities, research institutions and research funders the world over that have adopted (or are planning to adopt) an OA mandate are invited to register their policy in ROARMAP (the Registry of Open Access Material Archiving Policies) as a show of force during OA week, setting an example to encourage other institutions and funders worldwide to do likewise. If you know of an OA mandate -- already adopted or proposed -- that has not yet been registered in ROARMAP, please register it (or encourage a relevant official to register it). Please register your mandate in ROARMAP HERE Progress in mandate growth during OA week will be charted by Dr. Alma Swan (a Program Advisor for OA Week) in OASIS (Open Access Information Sourcebook), EOS (EnablingOpenScholarship) and elsewhere.
