ROAR is a searchable international Registry of Open Access Repositories indexing the creation, location and growth of open access institutional repositories and their contents. ROAR was created by EPrints at University of Southampton in 2003.[1][2][3][4] To date, over 3,000 institutional and cross-institutional repositories have been registered in ROAR.[5]

ROAR's companion database, 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.

Mandatory Archiving[edit]

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.[6][7][8][9][10] As of October 2015, open-access mandates have been adopted by more than 520 universities and more than 75 research funders worldwide.[11] ROARMAP mandates are classified in terms of strength and effectiveness[12] in MELIBEA[13]

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.
