Publish in the institutional repository, O2

The UOC institutional repository, O2 is a portal that collates, disseminates and preserves the open-access digital publications that have been deposited there. Follow the premises established in the Open Access Institutional Policy at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.

Here students can auto-deposit documents (final bachelor's degree project, final master's degree project and practicums) as can lecturers and course instructors (teaching materials and learning resources) and researchers (articles, chapters or parts of books, papers, research work, research documents, etc.).

How does it work?

The UOC institutional repository, O2 is a deposit for open-access electronic content and documents which collates the knowledge generated by the UOC community.

It is a self-archiving resource that encourages students, lecturers, course instructors and researchers to deposit the documents that they create.

If you are a student, we will help you auto-deposit your final bachelor's degree project, final master's degree project and practicum. You can make your deposit following the Guide to deposit Final Degree Projects, Final Master's Projects and Practicums in O2, the UOC's institutional repository.

If as a lecturer or course instructor you want to deposit teaching materials and learning resources (continuous assessment test texts, exams, etc.), we will guide you in self-publishing them. You can do so based on the Guide to depositing Teaching Materials in O2, the UOC's institutional repository.

Similarly, we will advise you in managing the auto-deposit of the students' final bachelor's degree projects, final master's degree projects and practicums.

If as a lecturer or researcher you have articles, chapters or parts of books, papers, etc., that you have written during your professional activity within the framework of the UOC and you have any queries on how they can be published as open, we will advise you. All of these documents can be published following the Guide to depositing Research Materials in O2, the UOC's institutional repository.

If you have any queries during the self-publishing process, you can contact us using the form, where you should state your query in as much detail as possible.
