OA Mandate at Two UK Universities

The University of Stirling has become the first academic institution in the UK to oblige staff to make all their published research available online. See the 9 April, 2008 press release. At about the same time, the University of Southampton announced a similar University-wide Open Access mandate. Southampton's School of Electronics and Computer Science was the first (2001) in the world to adopt a self-archiving mandate. This policy has now been applied to the whole university.
