Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR)
Promotes open access to the research literature, pre- and post-peer-review, through author self-archiving in institutional eprint archives.
Registry has two functions: (1) to monitor overall growth in the number of eprint archives and (2) to maintain a list of GNU EPrints sites (the software Southampton University has designed to facilitate self-archiving).
See the Library Guide for your discipline to identify relevant subject repositories e.g. arXiv, for physics, mathematics and computer science
