Directory of Open Access Repositories - OpenDOAR



What does it cover?

  •  Open access repositories of thousands of universities worldwide. Many of these contain full text working papers alongside references to other journal articles, theses and reports. Full text is often available where copyright allows. Particularly useful for tracing references to research from developing nations. However, remember to allow time to evaluate the results. Some may be to draft versions of papers or have incomplete references.
  • OpenDOAR is an authoritative directory of academic open access repositories. Each OpenDOAR repository has been visited by project staff to check the information that is recorded here. This in-depth approach does not rely on automated analysis and gives a quality-controlled list of repositories.
  • You can search for a particular repositories OR search the repository content
