Digital Knowledge Repositories 

INDEXAR - Digital Repositories of Knowledge, is a platform that aims to manage information about the national digital repositories and journals in the areas of science, technology and culture. This platform resulted from a Simplex+ measure whose execution was led by the Unit for National Scientific Computing of the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCCN) and counted with the collaboration of the New University of Lisbon (UNL) and the Directorate General of Books, Archives and Libraries (DGLAB). 

Who is it intended for?


INDEXAR is a Directory of repositories and digital journals in the area of science, technology and culture. INDEXAR aims to be the authoritative source of information about national repositories and journals and to ensure, as interoperably as possible, their presence in international directories. The information about these resources includes, among other relevant information, their eligibility to comply with legislation (e.g. Legal Deposit DL 115/2013) or policies/regulations (FCT open science policies).    

Through INDEXAR you can access information about repositories or journals by area of operation, by typology, by technology used, by subject, by types of content or by services available. It is also possible to consult statistical data about each resource or about the entire directory. All the information is available in a structured way through INDEXAR's Web interface or through a REST API that provides methods for a complete exposition of all the available information. 

Conditions of use

See the eligibility criteria on the INDEXAR website.
