Segnalata da Stevan Harnad questa Brisbane Declaration Ŕ stata firmata 
dai partecipanti (non credo si trattasse dei rettori) ad una conferenza 
tenutasi a settembre a Brisbane (Australia). Le universitÓ australiane 
sono decisamente avanti nel processo di implementazione dei repository . 
La Queensland University of Technology QUT ha adottato uno dei primi 
mandati per il deposito nel proprio IR.

> Preamble
>
> The participants recognise Open Access as a strategic enabling 
> activity, on which research and inquiry will rely at 
> international, national, university, group and individual levels.
>
> Strategies
>
> Therefore the participants resolve the following as a summary of the
> basic strategies that Australia must adopt:
>
> 1. Every citizen should have free open access to publicly funded 
> research, data and knowledge.
>
> 2.  Every Australian university should have access to a digital 
> repository to store its research outputs for this purpose.
>
> 3.  As a minimum, this repository should contain all materials 
> reported in the Higher Education Research Data Collection 
> (HERDC).
>
> 4.  The deposit of materials should take place as soon as 
> possible, and in the case of published research articles should 
> be of the author's final draft at the time of acceptance so as to 
> maximize open access to the material.
