Institutional - Disciplinary Repositories


Institutional Repositories


A. Une possibilité de mettre en ligne les recherches en open access ce sont les " Institutional Repositories",, C'est quoi exactement ?

B. Quelles sont les solutions informatiques qui permettent de gérer une base de donné de travaux scientifiques par une institution (institutional repository) ou une base de donnes ouvertes à multiples sources ?



Repositories are web-based, free to access, and potentially open up published research and other materials to a broad national and international audience, providing a route of access not previously available. A repository is a ‘store where electronic data, databases or digital files have been deposited, usually with the intention of enabling their access or distribution over a network’

Open source software for building open access repositories


Registry of Open Access Repositories

The aim of ROAR is to promote the development of open access by providing timely information about the growth and status of repositories throughout the world. Open access to research maximises research access and thereby also research impact, making research more productive and effective.


Open University Databases

Access a wide range of information sources, including abstracts and indexes, full-text journals, electronic books, images, statistics and financial data by using the relevant link in the list below.

The Open University provides high-quality distance learning for all



is an open source software package that provides the tools for management of digital assets, and is commonly used as the basis for an institutional repository



As the first professional software platform for building high quality OAI-compliant repositories, EPrints is already established as the easiest and fastest way to set up repositories of open access research literature, scientific data, theses, reports and multimedia



is the European guide to OAI-PMH compliant digital repositories in the world. This is not a search engine to find metadata stored in the repositories but a searchable index of the repositories themselves. If you are interested in the metadata click on "Digital Objects" below.

Millions of digital resources from thousands of contributors

OAIster is a union catalog of millions of records representing open access resources that was built by harvesting from open access collections worldwide using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). Today, OAIster includes more than 25 million records representing digital resources from more than 1,100 contributors

Disciplinary repositories


Est-ce qu'il y'a des "repositoires" qui regroupent les documents par disciplines ?


Wikipedia Disciplinary Repositories

A disciplinary repository is a collection containing works or data associated with these works of scholars in a particular subject area. The repository can be online and accept work from scholars across institutions in contrast to institutional repositories. A disciplinary repository shares the roles of collection, dissemination and archive of work with other repositories, but is focused on a particular area. These collections can include academic and research papers.
