Registry of Open Access Repositories

Somali Research and Education Repository (SORER)


The statistics currently shown are wrong but the harvesting operations should restart over the summer.

We are doing everything we can to bring the service back to normal and we apologise for the interruption to the service.


SORER is open access self-archiving multi-institutional digital repository system that enables Somali higher education and research institutions to host their research and educational resources for greater visibility and increased access. The descriptive details about the uploaded resources will be made available to Google and other search engines. SORER is implemented and operated by Somali Research and Education Network (SomaliREN) as one of its key mission to improve and facilitate research work among Somali higher education and research institutions. AII universities and research institutions will contribute to the SORER platform and will provide all Open Access to it. The purpose of the project is to assist our research and higher education institutions in increasing their research output and encouraging local content production.
