ResearchWorks Archive

ResearchWorks Archive is the University of Washington’s digital repository (also known as “institutional repository”) for disseminating and preserving scholarly work. ResearchWorks Archive can accept any digital file format or content (examples include numerical datasets, photographs and diagrams, working papers, technical reports, pre-prints and post-prints of published articles). However, individual files are limited in size to 1 TB, materials must contain sufficient metadata, and copyright restrictions may apply (see the ResearchWorks Archive Copyright and Author Rights page and FAQ). No special software is needed to submit materials.
In addition, the repository software creates persistent URLs that will not change over time. If a DOI or ARK is required, we can provide that via the university subscription to EZID. The Libraries encourages contributions from all communities across the three campuses.
