Funder repositories Fail to gather everything, only what they have funded Can impose mandate for funding, renewals or further requests Can collect data automatically from IRs to generate repertoires of the research they have funded
Institutional repositories (IR) Gather everything Can impose mandates for carreer progress Generate institutional repertoires automatically Can collect data automatically for their own repositories and records
IRs provide researchers with: The means to disseminate their work, free, to the World Secure storage (for completed work and for work-in- progress) A location for unpublished supporting data One input-many outputs (CVs, publications) A personal marketing tool IRs provide Universities with: A tool for research assessment A showcase of their research output
