The session will cover the basics of institutional Open Access repositories
Institutional Open Access repositories are tools for supporting, disseminating and showcasing the institution's educational and research outputs, as well as an alternative to the high cost of academic journals. The session will cover the basics of institutional Open Access repositories, including what they are, their advantages, difficulties, and barriers for the institution, contributing researchers, and the general public, their key characteristics, mandates, and policies, the available software platforms, how to configure a repository, and the metadata used. To help illustrate the theoretical points, examples and practical tips will be offered.
