The PASTEUR4OA project delivers Data Visualisations on Open Access Policies Worldwide

Mon, 31/08/2015 - 11:14 -- euroCRIS Secret...

Within the PASTEUR4OA project a series of data visualisations using data from ROARMAP has been created. ROARMAP, the Registry of Open Access Repository Mandates and Policies is a searchable international registry charting the growth of Open Access mandates adopted by universities, research institutions and research funders. 

As part of our work on the PASTEUR4OA project we have been creating a series of data visualisations using data from ROARMAP. ROARMAP, or the Registry of Open Access Repository Mandates and Policies is a searchable international registry charting the growth of Open Access mandates adopted by universities, research institutions and research funders.  Early PASTEUR4OA work involved developing a new classification scheme for the registry allowing users to record and search the held information with far more detail than before. The project has also added over 250 new policy entries to the ROARMAP database, it currently has 725 policies (as of 24th August 2015). Post rebuilding of ROARMAP a policy effectiveness exercise was carried out that examined deposit rates resulting from mandated and non-mandated policies. The exercise highlighted important evidence that shows three specific elements that support effectiveness: a mandatory deposit, a deposit that cannot be waived, and linking depositing with research evaluation. - See more at: http://access.okfn.org/2015/08/26/pasteur4oa-data-visualisations/#sthash...
