French lab adopts an OA mandate

The Labortoire de Psychologie et Neurosciences Cognitives (LPNCog) at the University of Paris Descartes has adopted a lab-specific OA mandate.  Here's the language from ROARMAP (added by Henri Cohen, January 24, 2007):

Allocation of funds to research teams is dependent upon members depositing pdf/rtf documents of all work accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals. A portion of the subsidy is made available later in the year after all have complied with the request.

PS:  Kudos to the LPNCog.  This looks like the patchwork mandate method at work at the U of Paris Descartes.
