The Registry of Open Access Repositories Mandatory Archiving Policies (ROARMAP) is a searchable international registry charting the growth of open-access mandates adopted by universities, research institutions and research funders that require their researchers to provide open access to their peer-reviewed research article output by depositing it in an open access repository. ROARMAP was created by EPrints at University of Southampton in 2003. As of December 2013, open-access mandates have been adopted by more than 240 universities and more than 90 research funders worldwide. ROARMAP mandates are classified in terms of strength and effectiveness in MELIBEA
ROARMAP's companion, the Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR), is a searchable international database indexing the creation, location and growth of institutional repositories and their contents. To date, over 3000 institutional and cross-institutional repositories have been registered in ROAR.
