DORA is the institutional repository and bibliography of the four research institutes within the ETH Domain ( Eawag, Empa, PSI, and WSL ), hosted by Lib4RI. The repository is based on the open source software framework Islandora.

DORA simultaneously acts as:

  • Open Access (OA) Repository — Researchers are able to make full text versions of their scientific articles freely available in DORA (through the green road to OA), thus increasing the visibility of publications and facilitating compliance with the OA policies of many research funders.
  • BibliographyDORA records the scientific publications of the research institutes and is thus a source for publication lists used e.g. on the institutional websites or for academic reports.
  • ArchiveDORA preserves the publications in full text and makes them available to members of the research institutes.
