There is an important infrastructure of resources in Spain, made up of institutional repositories, thematic repositories and open access journals where research publications can be published or deposited openly.
RECOLECTA aggregates all these resources in a single platform that guarantees its interoperability and allows open access to all national scientific publications.
The services of RECOLECTA to open access repositories are:
- Validator: Allows repositories to self-assess, as many times as they want, their degree of compliance with international interoperability guidelines and identify erroneous records.
- Collector: Aggregates the metadata of the repositories that are part of the RECOLECTA community on a weekly basis.
- Search engine: Allows free locating and access to all scientific publications deposited in Spanish repositories through a single interface.
