Digital Repositories are created in order to preserve and divulge the information produced in different institutions, thus promoting open access to this information.
An institutional repository (RI in Spanish) has the function of storing, organizing, preserving, and offering access to research material in a digital format, created from researcher activities. Institutional Repositories have become essential tools for academic communication in the digital age.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The CEDIA institutional repository stores, organizes, and broadcasts the digital contents that result from CEDIA's own activities and of our member researchers. This content can be publications, technical reports from CEPRAS projects, digital books, and manuals, among other things. Certain metadata is entered and attached to the digital document, and this metadata is validated and later uploaded to the digital repository.
- Increase the visibility of the published findings of CEDIA member researchers.
- Free access to content.
- The data and information is easily obtained and can be reused for other purposes.
- Increase the impact of the research as it offers more recent information.
- It is inter-operable, facilitates content restoration from repositories through search engines and information gatherers, such as the RRAAE.
