Many of the online platforms offer global contents and educational journals from around the world on a variety of subjects.

By exploring the UOC's institutional repository, O2 you can find documents such as this final project on the Tokyo tourism communication campaign by Luis Rodríguez Gómez or this one on the transformation of the cultural neighbourhoods of Montreal, by Maria Eloisa Hormigo Bartomeu.
