Listing of institutional repositories for depositing preprints of published materials with the aim of promoting the development of open access by providing timely information about the growth and status of repositories throughout the world. Open access to research maximizes research access and thereby also research impact making research more productive and effective.Repository Types:* Research Institutional or Departmental * Research Multi-institution Repository * Research Cross-Institutional * e-Journal/Publication * e-Theses * Database/A&I Index * Research Data * Open and Linked Data* Learning and Teaching Objects* Demonstration* Web Observatory* OtherRepository Software:* ARNO * Bepress * CDS Invenio * ContentDM by OCLC* DIGIBIB * DigiTool* DiVA * DoKS * DSpace * EDOC * EPrints * Equella * ETD-db * Fedora ** Fez * Greenstone * HAL * i-Tor* IntraLibrary * Keystone DLS * MiTOS * MyCoRe * Open Journal System * Open Repository * OPUS (Open Publications System) * Other softwares (various) * PMB Services * SBCAT * SciX * SobekCM * WIKINDX * Zentity
ROAR is a searchable international Registry of Open Access Repositories indexing the creation, location and growth of open access institutional repositories and their contents. ROAR was created by EPrints at University of Southampton in 2003.
BepressWith hosting and then you must pay.
Bepress was built by scholars to serve the needs of scholars. In the late 1990's, academic journals were plagued by slow turnaround times, limited access, and unreasonable prices. Publishers wanted to maximize profits, while editors wanted to maximize readership and share ideas. In 1999, UC Berkeley Professors Robert Cooter, Aaron Edlin, and Ben Hermalin banded together to launch a sustainable alternative: Berkeley Electronic Press, now simply called bepress.
Until September 2011 it also published electronic journals.
Digital Commons comes uniquely equipped with EdiKit™, a professional-grade peer-review/editorial management system.
Digital Commons is a hosted service, which means all you need is an internet browser to enjoy the rich features that the system offers.
Digital Commons is a suite of tools and services that enables institutions to manage, display, and publish scholarship to the web in a beautiful, highly visible online showcase. As the leading hosted institutional repository (IR) platform, Digital Commons offers all of the features of a traditional IR as well as professional-grade publishing tools and our SelectedWorks™ individual scholar pages.
A Digital Commons license includes setup, training, support, documentation, upgrades, and hosting. In short, you'll receive a full-featured institutional repository with service and support at a price less than the cost of implementing a similar open source application.
DspaceDSpace is a free and open source repository software package (Java) typically used for creating open access repositories for scholarly and/or published digital content. While DSpace shares some feature overlap with content management systems and document management systems, the DSpace repository software serves a specific need as a digital archives system, focused on the long-term storage, access and preservation of digital content.
DSpace supports the common interoperability standards used in the Institutional repository domain, such as Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting, SWORD, OpenSearch, and RSS.
Example Erudit and Dspace
Érudit is a Quebec non-profit publishing platform. Founded in 1998, it publishes research in the humanities and social sciences, as well as select physical and natural science journals. The organization is a consortium of Université de Montréal, Université Laval, and Université du Québec à Montréal. Érudit is the largest provider of Canadian French and bilingual research publications.
Érudit is based on Dspace.
EprintsEPrints is a free and open-source software package (PERL) for building open access repositories that are compliant with the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting. It shares many of the features commonly seen in document management systems, but is primarily used for institutional repositories and scientific journals.

The current version, OPUS 4, is developed in PHP (version 5.3) and is based on the Zend Framework and the search engine Solr. Data are stored in a MySQL database.
OPUS, originally an acronym for the Online Publikationsverbund der Universität Stuttgart, was developed with the support of the Deutsches Forschungsnetz in 1997 and 1998 at the University of Stuttgart. OPUS is used at many universities and library networks.
Since December 2010, the Cooperative Library Network of Berlin-Brandenburg (KOBV) took over the development and management of the project at the Zuse Institute in Berlin. In Germany, the OPUS software is the most commonly used for the operation of open access repositories (according to a survey carried out in 2012, 77 repositories were based on OPUS). OPUS-based repositories may either be hosted and operated by universities on their own, or as part of hosting services provided by the German library network. The KOBV provides hosting for more than 35 instances of OPUS.
Open Journal Systems
OPJ can be used also an open source software package (PHP) for OA repository.
Open Journal Systems (OJS) has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project.
PKP is a multi-university initiative developing (free) open source software and conducting research to improve the quality and reach of scholarly publishing.
The software has a 'plugin' architecture.
OJS hosting service is offered for a fee by PKP|PS (PKP-operated Publishing Services), as well as a variety of third-party commercial and non-commercial service providers not affiliated with PKP.
ROARMAPROAR's companion database, the Registry of Open Access Repositories Mandatory Archiving Policies (ROARMAP), is a searchable international registry charting the growth of open access mandates adopted by universities, research institutions and research funders that require their researchers to provide open access to their peer-reviewed research article output by depositing it in an open access repository.
The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) is a protocol developed for harvesting (or collecting) metadata descriptions of records in an archive so that services can be built using metadata from many archives. An implementation of OAI-PMH must support representing metadata in Dublin Core, but may also support additional representations.
The protocol is usually just referred to as the OAI Protocol; OAI-PMH uses XML over HTTP.
