Apollo logo

Apollo (previously DSpace@Cambridge) is the University of Cambridge’s institutional repository, established in 2003 as a service for storing and providing access to the outputs of Cambridge’s research activity. It is run by the University Library.

The repository stores a range of content and provides different levels of access, but its primary focus is on providing open access to the University’s research publications.

Apollo forms an important part of the University’s provision for meeting research funder requirements for open access, enabling ‘Green’ access to publications. For further information, see our Open Access pages, or to register your publication for ‘Green’ or ‘Gold’ access, please use the Open Access upload form.

Over the past ten years, Apollo has participated in a number of externally funded projects intended to better understand researcher requirements or improve the services it offers. These include: Incremental, DataTrain and PrePARe, which developed resources to support research data management and EPIC and Keeping Research Data Safe (KRDS), which focused on the repository’s preservation services.
