What is DORA? 

DORA is the digital repository and bibliography for all research articles and other publications affiliated with the four research institutes within the ETH-Domain and hosted by the Lib4RI:

As such, all included publications are authored, edited, published by one of the four research institutes, its members, or organizational units. For PSI, the publications resulting from research performed at the PSI laboratories are archived in DORA as well. DORA shares the publications with the public, following copyright rules.

DORA offers:

  • availability of full texts either for internal users or public
  • simple possibilities for search, filter and export
  • interfaces for the automated retrieval of data

For every research institute a separate DORA-instance exists, which manages the publications of the institute. You can reach each of the instances from the shared main site:
