Oklahoma State University has migrated its institutional repository to a new platform that will better serve the university and the state. The new site, Open Research Oklahoma, was developed with OSU’s land-grant mission in mind.

Open Research Oklahoma supports OSU’s research, teaching and outreach by enhancing the visibility and impact of the university’s scholarly output. It is freely available worldwide at

“As a land-grant university, OSU recognizes and promotes the importance of open access to scholarly information,” said Associate Dean of Library Operations Juliana Nykolaiszyn. “Platforms like Open Research Oklahoma serve the public good by facilitating the broad dissemination of research findings and removing barriers to access.”

Currently, the repository houses content from OSU-Stillwater and OSU’s Center for Health Sciences, including a mix of faculty publications, digital theses and dissertations, undergraduate research, open educational resources, and more. However, the intention of Open Research Oklahoma is to amplify not only OSU’s scholarly work, but also contributions across the state of Oklahoma.  

“While there are a variety of options within the research landscape, the OSU Library is ready to take the next step in helping other Oklahoma institutions share their scholarly output in new ways, with new audiences, across the open access landscape,” Nykolaiszyn said.

Setting up and maintaining an institutional repository can be an expensive and resource-intensive undertaking. That is why other Oklahoma-based academic institutions, cultural organizations and state agencies are invited to partner in Open Research Oklahoma, allowing them to share their unique academic content to increase access and discovery.
