Information about using UVic's Learning & Research Repository - UVicSpace


UVicSpace, our institutional repository, preserves and provides access to the digital scholarly works of UVic faculty, students, and staff.

From articles and conferences to reports and electronic theses and dissertations, UVicSpace is a quick, easy, and innovative way to increase the visibility and impact of your research.

  • Share your research with a global audience, faster, for increased citations and impact.
  • Be discovered through Google and Google Scholar. You can access full text online, and search full text within UVicSpace.
  • Comply easily with granting agency regulations for funding accountability and open communication.
  • Avoid broken links to your work with permanent web links.
  • Preserve your research long term and let the library manage your files safely and securely.

UVicSpace consists of collections submitted by UVic communities. A UVicSpace community is a scholarly unit at UVic, such as a department, centre, institute, or other group or individual that produces research. Each community is encouraged to name a community coordinator to help determine and review community policies and to ensure the long-term stability of the community.

Although valuable for the strength and success of a community, coordinators are not required for a community to exists or for individuals to belong to and submit to collections within that community. Communities without coordinators will have their policies determined by UVicSpace staff until a coordinator is named. Groups or individuals wishing to establish a community that falls outside of this definition will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
