Institutional repository of VNTU (IR VNTU) has been registered in the International Registry of Open Access Repositories ROAR to increase citations of authors of the university and to include them into the world information resources
Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR) is located at the Department of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton. There are more than four thousand items of institutional, thematic and sector-based repositories, electronic journals and databases in the archive. The goal of ROAR is to promote the development of open access by providing timely information about the growth and status of repositories around the world. Search through the ROAR is an additional way of finding information in open access archives, where it is possible to search simultaneously in all repositories. This greatly increases the chances of publication to be found and, therefore, cited, which is important for the assessment of scientific achievements of scientists of VNTU and for the enhancement of the university ranking in the world.
Institutional Repository of VNTU (IR VNTU) is also presented in the open register of Ukraine SSM (Simple Seach Metadata in Open Ukraine Arhives) where metadata are indexed from domestic electronic archives. It is supported by the Institute of Software Systems of the NAS (National Academy of Sciences) of Ukraine and Zhytomyr State University named after Ivan Franko.
