OA Mandates 99-101 in ROARMAP Stevan Harnad 17 Oct 2009 19:43 UTC
** Apologies for Cross-Posting **
With mandates 99-101 registered in ROARMAP, Green OA Self-Archiving
Mandates have now passed the 100 mark -- seven years after they began,
in 2002, with the very first one (University of Southampton's School
of Electronics and Computer Science). The pace has at last picked up,
especially since Harvard's mandate(s) last year, since which the
number has doubled.
#99 (funder, Sweden) Swedish Research Council http://bit.ly/1XSxI1
#100 (institution, UK) University of Salford http://bit.ly/Uqvsq
#101 (institution, US) National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)
We will be celebrating the Salford mandate (because it is a milestone,
the 100th), but stay tuned as there are rumors several more mandates
will be announced during next week's Open Access Week.
If your institution or funder has an OA mandate that is not yet
registered in ROARMAP, please do register it now!
