Self-Uploading into Repositories

To disseminate the output of your research, you may upload your papers not only in the Institutional Repository IRIHS, but also in various subject-based (see the examples below) or multidisciplinary repositories, like Zenodo (which can be used also to upload data). To find a suitable repository, please consult the Registry of Open Access Repositories or the Directory of Open Access Repositories. Please consider copyright policies when uploading your preprints: consult the database Sherpa/RoMEO to find out more about publisher's policies or contact IHS Library.

The IHS Library provides the IHS Working Paper Series in the three subject-based repositories EconStor, RePEc and SSOAR:


RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) is a decentralized database of working papers, journal articles and software components. All RePEc material is freely available. Participating in RePEc as a provider only involves the cost of your time in preparing and maintaining metadata describing your publications.

Scholars in Economics have the option of self-archiving their accepted manuscripts (if not conflicting with pulbisher's rules) to make them accessible. Currently EconStor provides access to working papers from approx. 100 institutions.
