How it works?
The UOC's institutional repository is a portal for the collection, dissemination and preservation of the open-access digital publications deposited in it.
Students can publish their bachelor's or master's degree final projects, members of teaching staff can deposit teaching materials and learning resources, and researchers can add articles, chapters or parts of books, conference documents, papers or other research documents.
Send us any queries you may have, or ask us about any issues encountered in the self-publishing process.
Follow the steps set forth in the guide to self-publishing.
Select your chosen publishing licence
Decide under which open source licence you would like to publish your content; i.e. how readers will be allowed to use it. You will always keep your intellectual property rights. More information about Creative Commons licences.
If you have any questions during the self-publishing process, fill in the form for the service, providing as much detail of your query as possible.
