University of Oslo has just registered its Institutional OA Self-Archiving
policy in ROARMAP. (All institutions that have adopted or are on the verge of
adopting a self-archiving policy are urged to register their policies to
provide an example and encouragement for other institutions contemplating
doing likewise, and to track worldwide progress in self-archiving and
self-archiving policy).


    University of Oslo Institutional Self-Archiving Policy

     All researchers must deposit their metadata (for articles) in FRIDA,
     UiO's research documentation system. It is as yet only compulsory
     to deposit metadata, not full-text.

     DUO is UiO's full-text institutional repository. In the near
     future DUO and FRIDA will be integrated so that UiO researchers
     can self-archive their full-texts (postprints) through FRIDA. The
     metadata and full-text will be transfered to DUO.

     Submission of theses will shortly be mandatory: From 2007 it will
     be compulsory for all postgraduate students to submit their theses

     DUO - Digital publishing at UiO - has been developed by the University
     Center for Information Technology (USIT) and the Oslo University
     Library (UBO) as a system for the net-based archiving of publications
     by UiO authors. It provides support for depositing, archiving and
     searching in diverse formats. Today DUO includes electronic versions
     of theses, special research papers, etc. and a growing number of
     scientific publications. The goal is to archive the whole spectrum
     of the research output (journal articles, books, reports, series,
     research documents, videos, etc.) published by UiO authors.
