Abstract

Institutional Repositories(IR) are infrastructures that ensure accessibility, stability and reliability of research data which requires policies, standards, and data management plan to deposit research data. The scholarly community needs reliable long-term access to research data. The data curation is important for the research community to develop a strategy for long term-use throughout its lifecycle, from creation, storage and dissemination to the time when it is archive. This paper describes an overview of the institutional repositories in Thai universities regarding the issues of the responsible units, the open access policy, the typology of repositories, the digital repositories structure, the catalog description, the format of research output, and the web portal. It also suggests the schemes for facilitating discovery and re-use of research data such as the national research data service and the registry of research data repositories.
