5,600 final projects in the O2 repository and 100 theses in TDX.
Open access to UOC publications
- 100 theses in the TDX repository! There are now 100 doctoral theses deposited in this digital archive. The latest is Diseño, implementación y evaluación de situaciones de aprendizaje mediadas por TIC en Educación Física a través de la colaboración docente by Meritxell Monguillot Hernando, a research work aimed at designing ICT-mediated learning situations for physical education.
- The O2 institutional repository. This site has resources coming from the UOC's research, teaching and administrative activities. Most of the publications are students' final projects. In fact, over 5,600 students have now deposited their final projects on the site – 426 in the last semester.
Why deposit works in the O2 repository?
Repositories like O2 are open-access digital archives that offer a great many benefits for authors, institutions and society:
- Greater reach and impact. Authors reach more readers and are cited more often. This is beneficial for their digital identity and leads to more opportunities. Institutions increase the scope of their scientific and academic output, and, in turn, society can access the contents freely and without restrictions.
- Protection and preservation. Authors have permanent access to their publications and institutions can collate and conserve the work produced by their communities. This means that all this knowledge is preserved throughout history and contributes to the protection of students' intellectual property.
Now that you know about the advantages of the O2 repository, are you going to join the open movement? It just takes a few simple steps to upload your final project.
