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 policies 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

  • Location: Télé-université du Québec
  • Link for more details, if available: Launch of book (in French) on the University and Intellectual Property on first day of OA Week: October 18 at the distance learning tele-university of Quebec: TÉLUQ The French-language book "Propriété intellectuelle et university: De la privatisation des idées à la libre circulation des savoirs" (Intellectual property and the university: Between the privatization of ideas and the free circulation of knowledge) will be launched in Montréal on the very first day of Open Access Week. The book, which includes a chapter on Open Access to scientific knowledge, promotes the idea of maximizing the access to and usage of university-produced intellectual works. The authors (Couture, Dubé & Malissard) have accordingly self-archived the revised manuscript of the entire book in UQAM’s repository Archipel, and obtained from the publisher (Presses de l’Université du Québec) the right to keep it there after publication. To our knowledge, this is a first in Quebec-based scholarly book publishing. The lessons which will be drawn from this “pilot project” could eventually lead, or so the authors hope, to something similar to Athabasca University Press, which publishes all its titles in open access, or Manchester University Press (UK), which endorse self-archiving of authors’ manuscripts.
