This page presents a compilation of organizations dedicated to the field of agriculture and related sciences that have adopted an open access mandate. It also includes other institutions, like universities, where agriculture is covered among other disciplines. This list is derived from the Registry of Open Access Repositories Mandatory Archiving Policies (ROARMAP).

Institutional Open Access policy mandates are created and adopted by research organisations, funders or governments. These policies guide affiliated researchers to make their peer-reviewed scholarly publications accessible by depositing them in the organization’s institutional repository. Institutional policies can either be voluntary or mandatory. Mandatory policies have proven to be effective in increasing deposits to an organisation’s institutional repository.
