Ice Carving the Research Through Institutional Repositories:Saving Academia from Intellectual Prostitution
Purpose: The paper tries to explore the role; institutional repositories play in highlighting the scholarly endeavours. The paper highlights how IR’s preserve and disseminate digital materials created by, or associated with an institution.
Methodology: Based on the findings of the earlier research the study will try to showcase the possibilities researchers can have from the IR’s. The published literature was reviewed critically stressing on their empirical findings.
Findings: The study reveals the academic impacts IR’s have on the academic circles in terms of wider visibility, better academic recognition, better academic performance and many more. The study clearly reveals that IRs provide an opportunity to integrate and facilitate knowledge sharing so as to enrich knowledge content and enhance global access.
