About the Repository

ePrints@Bangalore University is an initiative of Bangalore University Library, which collects, preserves and distributes scholarly output of Research and Innovation activities at Bangalore University  by its faculty, research scholars and students. The University is one of the oldest universies in the country and has many distinctions. This Open Access Institutional Repository, set up in December 2015, aims to cover scholarly publications covering journal articles, conference papers, books, book reviews, presentations, reports and patents since the establishment of the Varsity in 1964. While the documents are uploaded at present by library staff, the faculty and research scholars are encouraged to self-archive their publications. In keeping with the objectives of the Open Access Movement, we expect this service to facilitate the University researchers in self-archiving and long-term preservation of their scholarly publications, provide easy access to these publications world wide and improve impact of their research. While ePrints@Bangalore University can be accessed by anybody, submission of documents to this archive is limited to the BU research community. One can browse publications by year, subject, divisions of the varsity, author and document type. Both simple and advanced search features have been given for facilitating specific searches. Interested users can freely download and use documents as most of them are directly accessible and full-texts downloadable, if the publication is in open access or if their institution has the accessibility to the concerned journal/publisher. 'Request Copy' forms can be used for documents to which direct full-text download is restricted due to publisher embargo. Please see repository policies. Your comments and suggestions for improving this service are most welcome. Thanks for using our repository!
