OA repository for policy research

The Center for Governmental Studies (CGS) and the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) have launched Policy Archive, "a comprehensive, searchable, open access, online archive of public policy research."  (Thanks to The Exchange.)  From the site:

PolicyArchive will create a permanent, digital repository that will preserve public policy research in a comprehensive range of areas, and make it available to researchers around the globe.

PolicyArchive will create an online resource for public policy publications, free to all research seekers and available for upload to all policy research publishers. PolicyArchive will contain summaries and full texts of policy research - academic, foundation-funded, government - in a range of subject areas.
