Preserve and share your research through improved research repository
Preserve and share your research through the Library’s improved Research Repository
The University Library is proud to announce that we have improved our Research Repository.
The Research Repository is home to the varied and diverse collection of research conducted at KAUST—comprised of peer-reviewed articles, preprints, theses, dissertations, conference papers, posters, technical reports, images, research data sets, etc. Since its launch in 2012, this service has grown to house over 18,000 items of KAUST research.
New features, incorporated in our latest upgrade, include video streaming, native image view and integrated image zoom, as well as a REST API, which allows flexible connections to other systems, such as Pure. Together, these functions will substantially enhance the presentation capabilities of your research materials.
Get a persistent identifier (DOI) for your research data sets
The University Library recently joined DataCite and is now able to provide DOIs for research data sets deposited in the Research Repository. Please select the option to request a DOI when you submit research datasets or code.
Professor Georgiy L. Stenchikov, director of the KAUST Earth Science and Engineering Program, whose group used this new service for the first time, for a supplemental dataset registration to their recent JGR research article, commented that “It is very useful and well aligned with global initiatives and the current strong tendency to research data sharing.”
In forming this partnership with DataCite, the KAUST Library took the lead in the region— joining a leading library community of top ranked research institutions—such as Caltech, Purdue, CERN, ETH Zurich, Harvard and many more.
The continued development of the Research Repository is an integral part of the Library’s goal to serve as a beacon for future generations through the preservation and dissemination of the scientific research conducted at KAUST for the public good and to support the KAUST Open Access policy.
