Vytautas Magnus University e-Publication Repository (VMU ePub)
VMU e-Publication Repository is the infrastructure of services and means designed for accumulation and management of scientific publications created by the members of the University community. Most important in it is the organization of access to the research material of the University, ensuring its dissemination and long term preservation.
VMU was the first university in Lithuania to register the open access mandate (Registry of Open Access Repository Material Archiving Policies). In this registry one can find the documents on open access policy of the institutions and financing research institutions.
The dissemination of publications in VMU ePub is guaranteed by use of OAI-PMH protocol (the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting), which is usually used to collect information from various internet sources by all prevailing search engines, for example, Google, Baze, DART-Europe.
