What difference does a mandate make?
Posted by Peta Hopkins on April 24, 2006
University policies on research archiving have a significant impact on the coverage within institutional repositories. Arthur Sale's article analyses the coverage of content in Australian repositories demonstrating the success of coupling effective author support with a policy requiring authors to self-archive their papers. QUT's repository clearly outperforms other institutions' in the coverage of reported DEST output. QUT has a policy mandating authors to archive their research publications.
