UWC Research Repository (IR)

The University of Western Cape's Research Repository was established in 2010 to provide online access to UWC research output.

What is an IR?

An institutional repository (IR) manages, preserves and disseminates an institution's intellectual outputs and digital assets. Such a repository holds a wide variety of material that reflects the institution's intellectual wealth. Our IR is called the UWC Research Repository

Depositing your articles

Articles and other scholarly output are deposited via the UWC Article Drop, a holding platform from which they are harvested and uploaded to the Research Repository.  A simple guide to the use of the Article Drop is available here. An instructional video to using the Article Drop is also available on the UWC Library Youtube channel here.
