What should I do if my home institution does not have its own repository?

A digital version of your publication – the publisher PDF (published PDF) or the accepted manuscript after peer-reviewing (post-print), ideally not the author’s PDF (pre-print) – can be stored on your personal homepage, if you have one. Please note: digital publication in a repository is preferable to storing on your personal homepage because repositories offer advantages in terms of harvesting (search strategies). There are also professional repositories and libraries that will accept publications for their repositories depending on their collections. – Targeted searches can be performed for repositories with defined specialist subject content at the Directory of Open Access Repositories (OpenDOAR).
