• What is S-Space?

    S-Space is an institutional repository designed for a self-archiving. It is intended to collect, store and preserve the scholarly works or research outputs of SNU members and to make it available to the global research community through Open Access protocols.

  • How is S-Space organized?

    S-Space is organized into a hierarchical set of communities, sub-communities and collections:

    • Communities: college, graduate school and research institutes
    • Sub-communities: a division of the community that might include schools and departments
    • Collections: groups of related documents
  • Who may submit their scholarly works into S-Space?

    All SNU members are eligible to submit their scholarly works through S-Space. Professors and researchers affiliated with SNU may place their works, graduates and undergraduate students may submit their works in S-Space.

  • What kinds of materials are appropriate for S-Space?

    • Peer-reviewed materials (pre- or post-print, if rights retained)
    • Peer-reviewed materials (pre- or post-print, if rights retained)
    • Gray literature (conference papers, working papers, research works and project reports)
    • Theses & Dissertations (*e-Theses & Dissertations will be linked and managed by S-Space team in SNUL.)
    • Negative results or work that will not be finished
    • Lecture notes
    • Student research
    • Etc.
  • How do I get my research into S-Space?

    There are two ways to get your research into S-Space.

    You can complete the process yourself(self-archiving), or repository staff can submit the work on your behalf.

    You can add your work using the submission process detailed in 'Getting Started'.

    If you would like repository staff to archive material on your behalf, e-mail your work to the repository staff at s-space@snu.ac.kr and the work will be completed for you. To speed up the process, we ask that you include information about author(s), title, title of journal, year, volume and page numbers if known.

  • How does S-Space make my work discoverable?

    Repository documents are searched by S-Space, Google, and other search engines. More precise searching is accomplished by metadata records(descriptive cataloging information such as title, author, subject keywords, and so on). The terms entered into the metadata record by the submitter enable specialized search tools to find documents effectively.

  • What formats are supported?

    The system will accept any kind of file format. Repository staff may support to convert your files into PDF format, so if you want, e-mail your work to the S-Space repository staff at s-space@snu.ac.kr.

  • How do I know if I am allowed to submit an article that has already been published?

    Publisher policies relating to copyright, open access and self-archiving are listed on SHERPA/RoMEO(http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php). If you would like to know more information, please contact the repository staff at s-space@snu.ac.kr.
