Luiss Repositories adhere to international best practices and technical standards on open access, particularly regarding the interoperability of open access archives (standard OAI‐PMH) and long‐term conservation of contributions to scientific literature. The IRs take into consideration the guidelines of the Open Access Group of the CRUI Library Board for the creation and management of metadata, established on February 22, 2012.
LuissThesis collates the University’s final Theses defended at the end of the Luiss Guido Carli Degree Programs.
The Institutional Repository makes available the Theses discussed from the extraordinary session of the 2006/2007 Academic Year onward, with full-text versions for those theses for which the candidates have allowed online consultation, whereas solely bibliographic information is provided for the others.
Starting from 2021 within IRIS the Library also archives and preserves the Doctoral theses discussed at Luiss since 2008.
All doctoral theses are deposited and made available in Open Access at the end of the career, with the exception of justified cases for exclusion.
The IR is the only database for data on the University’s scientific production, responding thus to the University’s objectives regarding the promotion and dissemination of products of scientific research performed by scholars within their institutional activities, in order to increase visibility and impact at national and international level.
IRIS currently constitutes the Research Information System and is interoperable with MIUR databases and the European portal OpenAIRE.
