e-Repositori: UPF Digital Repository

What is it and what does it contain?

It is a repository of digital documents and its function is to collect, preserve and disseminate the intellectual production created at the UPF.

A repository is a tool (software and a server) that allows us to store and maintain digital objects (text documents, audiovisuals, images, music, etc.) and make them accessible through the web. It incorporates indexing and content description tools (metadata) and makes it easier the access to the contents from many other websites.

The e-Repository includes journals, theses, working papers, articles, presentations at conferences, seminars and congresses, teaching material, and reports on teaching, among other literature produced by the teaching and research staff of the UPF, and also institutional publications (annual reports, briefs, speeches, lectures, etc.).

Objectives and goals

  • To contribute to increase the impact of the research done at the UPF, giving greater exposure to researchers.
  • To preserve the intellectual memory of the UPF.
  • To contribute to initiatives for open access scientific communication.
  • To add value to documents through standardized citations, viewing statistics, permanent addresses and preservation mechanisms.
  • To complement UPF’s Scientific Production Portal (SPP)


Its content is organised in communities and collections according to the typology, origin and the object of the documents:
