The Research Repositories, Networks and Social Media tools listed below will help you to get your research 'out there'.
Digital repositories are a way to showcase, preserve, disseminate and make scholarly works, and their data, freely accessible online.
They are useful in helping researchers comply with funder mandates on the accessibility of research data.
Repositories are usually maintained by discipline, agency or institution, e.g.
OUR Archive (Otago University Research Archive) - our Institutional Repository and gateway to deposit, collect, manage and share research outputs from University of Otago staff and postgraduate students, e.g. Article pre-prints and manuscripts, technical reports, conference proceedings, posters, data sets, creative work, software, theses and dissertations.
IRs compliment traditional research publishing models. They also offer a range of benefits:

Research networks or communities differ from repositories, with their research outputs, by including connections and collaborations, like personal profiles, links to organisations, upcoming conferences and blog sites.
Ensure that you own the copyright of your article, or that you have permission from your publisher before sharing articles through your research networks.
