The Central Economics and Mathematics Institute of the Russian Academy of
Sciences and the Middle East Technical University in Turkey have
adopted Open Access Self-Archiving Mandatesaand registered them

Bravo to these institutions. Worldwide, that now makes:

    11 institutional mandates
    3 departmental mandates
    12 funder mandates
    5 proposed funder mandates
    1 proposed multi-institutional mandate

(and some of the proposed mandates are big ones!)

If your institution has an Institutional Repository, please register it in
the Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR), which will then track its
growth and contents:

And if your institution has adopted or is proposing to adopt an OA Self-Archiving
Mandate, please register it in ROARMAP, for others to see and emulate:

UNIVERSITIES: If you have adopted or plan to adopt an institutional
policy of providing Open Access to your own research article output,
please describe your policy at:

    BOAI-1 ("green"): Publish your article in a suitable toll-access journal
    BOAI-2 ("gold"): Publish your article in a open-access journal if/when
            a suitable one exists.
    in BOTH cases self-archive a supplementary version of your article
            in your institutional repository.
