31   May   2017

More than 5,00 students have published their final project or thesis in the UOC's repository to preserve it and to raise its profile and impact.

More than 5,00 students have published their final project or thesis in the UOC's repository to preserve it and to raise its profile and impact.

O2, the UOC's repository, is an open-access digital archive that collects, disseminates and preserves the university community's publications. Users can access the contents freely and with no restrictions. 
 

Think about all the time you have spent on your final bachelor's or master's degree project: the time spent looking for and selecting the best information, comparing different points of view, structuring your ideas, developing the sections and overcoming writer's block.... Why not convert all this effort into added value and a personal letter of presentation?

What advantages are there to publishing your final project here?

  • Raise its profile and impact. Increase the number of readers and citations. Make it easier for everyone to find and access it from internet search engines. Improve your digital identity, increase your number of opportunities.
  • The O2 repository handles the copyright using Creative Commons licences which allow for more or less open publication and prove that you are the author of the work.
  • Preserve your work. You will have a permanent URL that will remain the same regardless of any changes to the repository's interface. This means you can retrieve your work whenever you want.

Requirements

If your work contains data that need to be protected, such as personal details or corporate secrets, you must remove this information before depositing it. Likewise, the contents cannot violate third parties' intellectual or industrial property rights.

How can you publish your work?

You can deposit it yourself on O2 by taking these steps. All deposits are reviewed by the Library. Once the work has been published, you will receive an email with the document's permanent URL.

If you have any questions or suggestions, contact the Library Replies service.
