Institution's/Department's OA Self-Archiving Policy



As of November 2006, Bharathidasan University has made it mandatory for all faculty members publishing in refereed journals to send their papers to the University Informatics Centre (matram AT bdu.ac.in) for deposit in the university's Institutional Repository.

The university believes that the repository will increase the citation of its publications and will boost interdisciplinary research collaboration among the faculty. The university stands second only to the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, in implementing Open Access in India and it has taken the lead among general universities.
