Institutional Repository

NIST and NOAA have institutional repositories (IR) in which agency-authored publications need to be deposited in order to follow federal guidelines to open public access to research.


The NOAA IR contains NOAA publications from 1970-present and NOAA-authored articles from 2016-present. Information on what should be submitted to the IR, the process to submit, and any other information is available in the NOAA IR FAQ. Also check out a recent presentation by Jennifer Fagan-Fry, manager of the NOAA IR, on the benefits of submitting one’s work to the IR, an overview of the submission process, and how IR staff are available to assist with submission.


The NIST IR contains NIST publications and NIST-authored articles from 2015-present. Information on the NIST publishing process including depositing in the IR is available on the NIST publishing papers page.
