The Leiden Repository contains publications by scholars from Leiden University and from institutes affiliated with the Leiden University. The publications have been made freely accessible (Open Access) where possible. The Leiden Repository has been subdivided in several different sectors by means of different communities and collections.
Direct access to the Leiden Repository.
If you are trying to find a specific publication by authors from Leiden University you do not necessarily have to use the search facilities in the repository. These publications can also be found with more general search engines such as Google , Google Scholar or Yahoo! . A special search engine specifically for Open Access publications is OAIster . By using this site you can simultaneously search through almost 700 repositories and Open Access-databases. For some search queries, however, it is easier to use the facilities in the Leiden Repository, for example when you want to view all publications by one specific author or if you want to view publications dating from a specific year.
- By using the search bar on the homepage of the Repository you will search through all collections and all fields at the same time.
- If you select Advanced Search you will find several more specific search possibilities. Here you can select in which collection in the Repository you want to search and in which fields your search term should be found.
- If you enter more than one search term, these will automatically be combined by OR. To combine words with AND, you must indicate this explicitly.
- You can also browse through a number of indexes. In this way you can find an alphabetical overview of all authors in the Repository or a chronological overview of publications.
