Bravo Teesside!

And since then, INRA (France) and U. Nottingham (UK) have announced the second and third institutional mandates of the Open Access Week 2010 Mandate Adoption Challenge

You can follow the daily progress of the OA Week OA Challenge on Alma Swan's OASIS and EOS [click twice] sites.

Please register any adopted or proposed mandates in ROARMAP, and encourage everyone else to do so too!
