All the scientific production, formal and informal, draft or definitive, published or unpublished, should be available from a unique web site. The institutional repository is a very important asset of the institution as a whole, not only of the library. We recommend the following syntax for the institutional repository web address:
  • It is very important to avoid changing the institutional domain as it can generate confusion and it has a devastating effect on the visibility values.
  • Avoid cumbersome navigation menus based on Flash, Java or JavaScript that can block the robot access.
  • For scientists it is important that the link to the full text would be easily citable.
  • Therefore Very Long URLs should be avoided in all situations.
