Kenyatta University’s Institutional repository now OAI-PMH compliant

Kenyatta University’s Institutional repository is now OAI-PMH compliant. OAI-PMH is acronym for Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting. This means that service Providers are now able to make OAI-PMH service requests to harvest all the metadata for publications made on Kenyatta University’s Institutional repository. This is also in line with the university’s support for open-access policy which allows for unlimited access to its academic out put.

For academic writers and researchers, this will mean that their work that has been published on the institutional repository will have more visibility on the web and thus directly translate to a higher H-index and i-10 indices. These are indicators of one’s research impact.
