Geneva Graduate Institute Repository

Policies and rules of the Geneva Graduate Institute repository


The aims of the Geneva Graduate Institute's repository are to:

  • provide a secure and permanent archive of the research produced by the Geneva Graduate Institute and its professors
  • make this research more visible
  • provide a place where researchers at the Geneva Graduate Institute who have an open access mandate from their funders can fulfil this mandate in accordance with green open access principles
  • provide an appropriate venue for professors and researchers who wish to make their papers and articles open access.


The Geneva Graduate Institute's repository contains the records of all books, book chapters, journal articles and papers written by the professors and researchers of the Institute, all working papers produced by the departments and research centres, as well as master's theses, doctoral theses and dissertations in progress. A full-text file is attached to the records of papers, journal articles and theses.

Access to these files can be:

  • private (accessible only to the repository administrators)
  • restricted (to members of the Geneva Graduate Institute community; identification via SWITCH edu-ID)
  • or open to all in compliance with copyright law, with an embargo period if necessary
