Would like to archive all my papers/publications somewhere so they're easier to find/read/cite. Starting to believe that there are *no* facilities to do this

- preprint servers are for preprints, often have surprisingly poor/totally absent metadata facilities, often don't allow older papers/papers that are published elsewhere
- self-hosting something might be an option, but then you don't get a DOI, unless you pay crossref a subscription
- zenodo is close, but doesn't allow you a profile page with a list of your publications, and is largely ignored by other indexes/systems like google and researchfish
- google scholar is ok, but could go away at any moment, and if I try to upload a pdf there I always get "The system can't perform the operation now. Try again later."
- sites like academia.edu are just another case of awful cash-grabbing walled gardens, rather than paragons of open publishing

I guess I just upload them to my personal website and hope for the best..

not a librarian but I've worked at places that have institutional repositories. I'm also aware of several fields that have their own discipline-specific repositories.

The institutional ones tend to be more open-ended about the types of things they'll host whereas the discipline specific ones can be very very specific indeed and not appropriate.

@idlestate the problem is that I am a researcher but based in a nonprofit rather than an institution. Maybe there is some nice free software for self hosting a repository though.. we would have to pay to mint dois though.

@yaxu

Seems the sort of thing orgs like Ronin [sic] Institute well ought to do

@yaxu I've used https://www.osf.io/ in the past for archiving data. Each project (part) gets a useful wiki and a DOI.
I've also come across https://www.pubpub.org/, which looks neat for communities but can probably fit a personal repository kind of thing too.
Both are run by non profit organizations focused on open knowledge.

@miguelarbesu yes I've used pubpub for research workshops. It looks a lot like the future but isn't good for hosting random pdfs I think. Also its open source in theory but you can't actually self host it in practice

@yaxu good to know, thanks! OSF allows that but does not offer self hosting. However, they do have a data preservation fund in place, if that is enough guarantee :)
