Repositories are a great place for theses (Bachelor, Master and PhD) and conference materials (abstracts, papers and posters), not just Green or Gold articles, more people need to realize this and contribute.

I have to say I’m disappointed but unsurprised to see the Finch Report’s recommendations on the role of institutional repositories endorsed in this forum. Largely forgotten in the Gold-rush euphoria following on from the report is the fact that underpinning IR’s throughout the UK and elsewhere are institutional policies requiring where possible, deposit of a copy of ALL research outputs into an institutional repository. Please note: deposit in an institutional repository NOT a subject based one. To narrow that remit so it omits published research runs contrary to this policy position. It merely strengthens the hand of publishers who, from the outset, have sought to undermine repository development in the home institution as a critical component in facilitating an infrastructure to support the transition to OA.
