  • © 2018 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. In the context of the open access (OA) movement, repositories provide a window for scientific and academic communities to preserve and share knowledge. Glassman & Kang (2016) stressed the importance of educational institutions developing technologies that support an open educational system. Accordingly, Ramírez (2015) mentioned that OA is an opportunity to improve the transfer and dissemination of knowledge and discuss the relevance of repositories as a space to accommodate and recover scientific and educational production. In this sense, institutional repositories (IRs) not only constitute a support for the open dissemination of knowledge, but also bring with them challenges that must be worked out in organizational cultures.
