Open-access archives and repositories

  • There is no official or complete list of archives and repositories. I don't plan to list all the lists I can find, just the best. If there is ever a directory of archives as comprehensive and up-to-date as the DOAJ is for journals, then I'll probably delete this section.
  • Alphabetical order.
  • Open-access OAI-compliant archives (or "data providers" in OAI lingo)
  1. Directory of Open Access Repositories (DOAR). Maintained by the Universities of Nottingham (in England) and Lund (in Sweden).
  2. ePrints UK list. Maintained by RDN. Limited to the UK.
  3. Explore Open Archives. Maintained by OpCit.
  4. Institutional Archives Registry. Maintained by Tim Brody. The only list of OAI archives showing the growth of their contents over time. Also organizes archives by country, type, the underlying software.
  5. OAI list. Formerly official but no longer kept up to date. From the Open Archives Initiative.
  6. Open Archives Initiative Repository Explorer. Maintained by Hussein Suleman.
  7. OAIster list. Maintained by OAIster.
  8. SPARC list. Maintained by SPARC.
  9. TARDIS list. Maintained by TARDIS.
  10. UIUC list. Maintained by the Grainger Engineering Library Information Center at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Automated to some extent so it's likely to more complete than most other lists. Also see the Errol list and project from OCLC, built on the UIUC list.
