Abstract

The content in many repositories in Latin America fail to come up in systematic searches largely due to the inadequate use of domain names and metadata schema, find Enrique Orduña-Malea and Emilio Delgado-López-Cózar. Institutional repositories are ultimately websites and concepts such as usability, information architecture, search engine optimization, among others, should be considered in their primary design. In a context like Latin America, in which scholarly production requires extra visibility because it lies outside the academic mainstream, repositories are essential vehicles, and their low visibility could significantly affect their real use by end users.
