Open Access

How to find and use open access resources.

What is an Institutional Repository?

Centennial's Object Repository (CORe) is an Open Access digital repository that provides a place to share, preserve, and find digital items connected to Centennial's scholarly activities. The repository helps us to promote Centennial College’s scholarship and institutional creations. You can find published and unpublished scholarly material and digital assets such as conference presentations, research articles, newsletters, images, multimedia, and audiovisual materials developed by Centennial faculty and students. 

The Importance of an Institutional Repository

By making your material available in an open repository you are making your work more visible and discoverable. You are also contributing to equity in access to information by making your work available without a paywall. To learn more about your rights as an author to submit your work, you can

  • consult your agreement with your publisher, 
  • search Sherpa-Romeo for quick information about publishing models for journals
  • ask Joanna Blair, Scholarly Communications Librarian 

What Material Can I Submit?

You can submit any unpublished creative or scholarly works such as reports, teaching material, conference presentations and license it as an open resource in CORe. You may be able to submit pre-prints of your published materials depending on your agreements with the publishers.
