The Iris/AperTO open access institutional archive aims at collecting and preserving the intellectual works of the University of Turin, making them available over time and without barriers, through a unique and persistent web address.
AperTo is connected to the Catalogue of research products, which directly interfaces with the MIUR professors’ pages.
It offers teachers and researchers the ability to easily publish their own work on the web through self-archiving, thus increasing the visibility of academic research and its dissemination.
It provides support to professors for managing their educational materials. Users may retrieve an electronic full-text item from any computer located anywhere by taking advantage of different search modes.
The University of Turin has adopted a regulation on open access.
