Ten-year analysis of University of Minho Green OA self-archiving mandate
Is part ofUma Década de Acesso Aberto na UMinho e no Mundo ; pp. 48-66.
University of Minho adopted the first university-wide Green Open Access Man-date in Europe in 2004, requiring all research output to be self-archived in the institution’s repository. The mandate was upgraded in 2011 to designate the repository as the sole mechanism for submitting publications for individual and institutional research performance assessment. A 10-year analysis shows that deposit rates are increasing and deposit delays are decreasing. Once the rest of the world follows Minho’s example, universal Green OA will not be far behind.
