There are a growing number of national and regional repository aggregator networks that harvest metadata (and in some cases full text) from repositories and other data sources, and provide a variety of services such as tracking open access content, discovery of national research outputs, standardized usage statistics, and more.

These aggregators often also act as important mechanisms to bring together a national or regional community of repositories to help define standardized practices for repositories, determine policies, and develop a shared vision for repositories.

FECYT and COAR have developed Aggregators Profiles to provide more information about the services and scope of participating aggregators. If you would like your information to be updated, or you are an aggregator and want to be included in the dashboard, please contact COAR Office.
