An interview with Prof Manuel Ramírez Sánchez on 10 November 2015
“Since the creation of the Institutional Repository, everything has change.”
Most difficulties came in the early days when a History professor had to learn how to develop a webpage, upload content and generate it. However, since the creation of the Institutional Repository, everything has changed. Today, making content accessible is easier; content is uploaded faster; metadata is incorporated more quickly: the change has been incredible. The time that it used to take me to share an article in Open Access has fallen to only a few minutes.
