OA mandate tallies at ROARMAP

The folks at EPrints have revamped ROARMAP, the database of funder and university OA mandates.  The front page now has a very useful tally of the worldwide OA mandates in six categories:

  • Departmental mandates (today = 4)
  • Institutional mandates (18)
  • Funder mandates (22)
  • Proposed institutional mandates (1)
  • Proposed multi-institutional mandates (2)
  • Proposed funder mandates (4)

It also has two world maps, one showing OA mandates by country and the other showing OA repositories by country.
