Institutional repository is a digital hosting solution - usually designed for academic entites, capable of managing/ presenting complex activities of the institutions including the publication of open journals.
Within the university libraries there is limited space to store the huge amount of printed content, currently available. As a consequence, the materials available for teaching and learning are mostly digital nowadays. Digital hosting implies designed devices, which require much smaller space than the physical space needed for archiving books.
An academic repository allows students, teachers, researchers and academic staff to easily keep their digital documents. In this way, stored content becomes available to people who want to read it, either inside or outside the university. Accordingly, another reason in favor of the digital content is the fact that digital content is easy to be stored, used and shared in academic media, compared to printed content.
Finally, an important consideration supporting the digital movement is the cost of electronic journals. Academic research from universities and specialized institutions are under development, generating thus more and more results that need to be (at least in part) disseminated.
