During Open Access Week in October both Otaru University of Commerce and
Hokkaido University will be holding meetings to promote deposit and adoption
of a mandate. I have accepted invitations to speak at both events, arranged
by Shigeki Sugita of the library at Otaru University of Commerce and Masako
Suzuki of the library at Hokkaido University. Both are keen supporters of
Green OA and a deposit mandate and are working hard to persuade managers and
faculty at these two very different though physically close universities to
adopt mandates (Otaru, being small and with limited funds has an access
problem itself, whereas Hokkaido is one of the top ten universities in Japan
and provides full funding of toll-gate access fees for its staff, who
nevertheless lose impact for their publications when they are not deposited,
unless published in an OA journal),
