ROARMAP growth curves for green open access self-archiving mandates, 1 Aug 2011

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.[1][2][3][4][5] 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[6] in MELIBEA[7]

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.
