ZORA (Zurich Open Repository and Archive) provides open and worldwide access to the research and scholarly output of the University of Zurich. Researchers of the University of Zurich deposit a copy of their publication in ZORA, where the accepted publication types are specified by the Board of Directors.
Publications in ZORA are presented with full text and figures (PDF) whenever possible, as accepted manuscripts or published PDFs (see the difference). If fulltexts are not freely accessible, they can be requested - in case the researchers left their contact-e-mail-address - directly using the "request a copy"-button.
Links to original online publications are provided wherever possible, as DOI (digital object identifier) or URL (internet address) of the articles. This provides for correct bibliographic reference and access to the publishers' files. This access is free for some publishers, but mostly a licence is required. Copyright remains with the original publisher or with individual authors, whichever applies.
Information in ZORA policies regarding accessing and re-using deposited items can be viewed on our separate policies page.
