OATAO (Open Archive Toulouse Archive Open) is a mutual institutional open repository runned by 3 higher education institutions in Toulouse, specialized in engineering and agro-biosciences. Coverage includes articles, book chapters, reports, conference papers, etc.
Since its creation, OATAO has contributed to enhance collaboration between the CIRIMAT researchers because all the publications are made available, which was not the case before. Indeed, there were no recordkeeping system to ensure the durability of their work. "Now, 90 % of the articles of the lab are in the open access".
