The Boston University Institutional Repository contains documents and publications authored or co-authored by BU faculty, students, and staff.

OpenBU is an open access repository, which means that the full text of the work deposited here is freely accessible to the world via the web. Access is restricted only in unavoidable instances, for example where publisher copyright restrictions prevail. However over 90% of scholarly publishers worldwide now allow some version of the documents they publish to be made available in a repository such as this.
