Ten-year Analysis of University of Minho Green OA Self-Archiving Mandate

This content is not available in the selected language.

University of Minho adopted the first university-wide Green Open Access Mandate in Europe in 2004, requiring all research output to be self-archived in the institution’s repository. The mandate was upgraded in 2011 to designate the repository as the sole mechanism for submitting publications for individual and institutional research performance assessment.
