OpenDOAR is an authoritative directory of academic open access repositories. Each OpenDOAR repository has been visited by project staff to check the information that is recorded here. This in-depth approach does not rely on automated analysis and gives a quality-controlled list of repositories.

OpenDOAR Repository Contents Search is a search engine for full-text of material held in open access repositories listed in the Directory. This based on the Google Custom Search Engine, which allows OpenDOAR to define a search service based on the Directory holdings.

Users of this service can search through the world's repositories of freely available research information, with the assurance that each of these repositories has been assessed by OpenDOAR staff. This quality controlled approach will minimise (but not eliminate!) spurious or junk results, and lead more directly to useful and relevant information.
