Repositories at UWC

UWC Library Services manages three institutional repositories, collectively known as UWC Scholar. They are the UWC Electronic Theses and Dissertations Repository (ETD); the UWC Research Repository (for all UWC-authored publications) and UWC’s Research Data Repository Kikapu (an instance of Figshare), which is the preferred mode of storing and publishing research data at UWC.

A brief introduction to repositories at UWC.

Zenodo is another option for UWC researchers, and there is an active UWC Zenodo community.

Both Kikapu and Zenodo are Open Access online repositories for research data, and once data is published (and licensed), a DOI is minted.
