EPrints 3.2 is the latest version of the popular repository platform. This document is a brief guide to some of the most important features that an EPrint repository will offer.

EPrints offers a safe, open and useful place to store, share and manage material in the pursuit of research and educational agendas (administrative reporting, collaboration, data sharing, digital profile enhancement , e-learning, e-publishing, e-research, marketing, open access, preservation, publicity, research assessment, research management and scholarly collections).

An EPrints repository is a valuable part of the researcher’s information environment,
directly integrating with the research desktop
and offering sustainable storage and open access. It is also a competent and mature component of the institution’s information environment, providing management and curation support for core business research data and leveraging information about research outputs to inform management strategy.
