This list is part of the Open Access Directory.

  • This is a list of institutional rights-retention open-access policies (IRRPs).
  • Many thanks to Luke Drury, Stephen Eglen, Ross Mounce, Sally Rumsey, Peter Suber, and many more for helping put this list together.
  • Please use YYYY-MM-DD for dates, this is the ISO 8601 international date standard.
  • When we don't have better information, we sometimes use adoption dates rather than effective dates, and policy drafts or announcements rather than policy texts. We'll update both kinds of entries as we get better information.

Notes:

  • The University of New South Wales policy is more or less mandatory. "Except as otherwise agreed in writing by the President and Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research and Enterprise" it is not characterized as a simple opt-out and so we do not treat it as such.
