If your institution has adopted (or upgraded) and OA policy, please
register it in ROARMAP <http://roarmap.eprints.org/> to inspire other
institutions to adopt and register their OA policies.

ROARMAP is also conducting studies, with the help of the data from the new
ROAR <http://roar.eprints.org/> database (coming soon) to monitor and
record the effectiveness of OA policies in terms of their *deposit rate*
(percentage of annual published output that is deposited) and *deposit
latency *(when the papers are deposited, relative to publication date).

OA Policies differ in their requirements. It is hoped that the comparative
data will help institutions that already have an OA policy to monitor and
compare its effectiveness with other policy models and will help
institutions planning to adopt and OA policy to pick the most effective
