Why Funders Need to Mandate Institutional Deposit, Not Institution-External

Amsciforum 2012-07-31


The natural, uniform, systematic and optimal solution is for all self-archiving mandates -- institutional and funder -- to stipulate that deposit should be in the author's IR (convergent deposit). That way institutions are maximally motivated to adopt mandates of their own; authors have only one deposit to make, for all papers, in one place, their own IRs; institutions can monitor funder mandate compliance as part of grant fulfillment, and the automatic harvesting can be done in the sole direction it is really needed: Institutionally to Institution-Externally.
