OA mandate at France's ANR

The Humanities and Social Sciences branch of France's Agence Nationale de la recherche (ANR) has adopted an OA mandate, requiring its grantees to deposit their peer-reviewed manuscripts in HAL-SHS, the humanities and social sciences section of HAL.  (Thanks to Stevan Harnad.)

In November 2007, ANR adopted a policy to encourage OA archiving, and the new policy strengthens it by requiring project managers to insure that it is done.
