Getting started

  • What is the KAUST Repository?

    This is our institutional repository. It is intended to capture, store and preserve our research output and to make it available to the research community.

  • How is it organized?

    This repository is organised into a hierarchical structure of communitiessub-communities and collections. Sub-communities are a further division of the community. Collections are groups of related documents.

    Each community, sub-community and collection has its own home page which can be customised with an individual logo and introductory information. Each community or collection will also be able to decide its own policies towards access restrictions and at the collection level who will be allowed to be able to submit.

  • So what will I find here?

    You will find work submitted by both students and faculty relevant to their research: theses, dissertations, pre and post-print journal articles, technical reports, conference papers, datasets and multi-media files.

    When you click on a link to an item you will be taken to the item view page which lists the key metadata for that item and links to the digital files.

  • Do I need to register?

    No login or registration is needed to search the repository and download open access items. KAUST staff, students and faculty can log in with their KAUST username and password to deposit files or to access files that have restricted access. Users not affiliated with KAUST need to register if they want to sign up for collection email alerts.
