Repositories for the promotion of research data and scientific publications

We propose the resources which can be used by the authors to share the results of their researches (preprints, published materials and more), also, for sharing the research data.

Registry of research data repositories

The multidisciplinary registry allows easy identification of repositories (the ones that contain research data, not only the scientific publications), define their functional possibilities and how open they are.

Electronic Archive of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute research and educational materials (ElAKPI)

Educational and research materials of the university staff, lecturers, PhDs and post-doctoral students of the University have to be placed into ELAKPI for the effective representation in open access.

User registration and submission of materials to ELAKPI (manual).

Other Repositories

The largest electronic archive of preprint materials in physic, mathematics, astronomy, and computer sciences.


The repository is open for all scientists, no matter what is their research field or the financial aid sources. All the deposits are saved at the CERN Data Centre. Any deposit to Zenodo receives DOI for free.


Cloud technology service to store and manage scientific documents, which allows safely manage your research results and make them visible, accessible and citable.

The components of the researcher’s image: identification

How to create unique researcher’s identifiers in ORCID, Researcher ID, Google Scholar The rapid development of digital scientific content complicated search and identification of the authors of particular researches, Firstly, dozens of scientists around the world could have the same surname. Secondly, translating the same surname in different languages in different journals can have other rules of transliteration. At the same time, the development of international scientometric bases demands a clear author’s identification. To solve such problems, digital author identifiers are created. That allows associating the authors with the results of their research activity. We suggest you create and update your profile on popular services. How to register Author profile in ORCHID: guidelines (in Ukrainian) ORCID – an open-source, non-profit project for creating and maintaining a registry of unique researchers IDs, a transparent and holistic way to present research results. ORCID gives:

  • proper Author’s identification
  • guarantees the connection to other unique Author’s identifiers (AuthorID Scopus and ResearcherID та ін.)
  • reliable and unambiguous correlation of researchers’ information to the full, exact and up-to-date data about their scientific publications.

ResearcherID – an international system of personal identification of authors of scientific publications. It is used to identify authors in international databases of scientific publications, for instance, Web of Science. ResearcherID allows to:

  • create Author’s profile and link different variants of name and surname spelling in the Latin alphabet
  • form the list of own publications
  • define own scientometric data (citation index, h-index)
  • associate your profile with ORCID.

How to edit your Author’s profile in Scopus: guidelines (in Ukrainian) AuthorID Scopus – Author’s profile in Scopus, database which is forms automatically if even one article of the researcher appears in the database. AuthorID Scopus allows to: – edit Author’s profile and link different variants of name and surname spelling in Latin alphabet, choose the variant preferred by the Author – edit list of author’s publications in Scopus (delete the publications of other scientists and to add those which are absent) – define own scientometric indexes (citation index, h-index). Google Scholar– is a free-of-charge specialized search engine, that allows finding bibliographic citations of your articled and accounts automatically some of the scientometric indexes. At Igor Sikorsky KPI there is a decree dated 23.03.2016 that guarantees the implementation of such services into the practice of the University lecturers and researchers.

Social networks for scientists


Academic social network. It’s services allow users to share documents, ask and answer questions of participants, search new possibilities for cooperation. Like Zenodo and Figshare it gives DOI for your documents for free. Calculates its indicator RG Score for the network users.


The service combined functional abilities of a bibliographic manager and social network for researchers. It helps to search scientists with the same research interests and geographic location, create groups to exchange information and work together. Supplies materials overview and author page statistics.

Researchers in Wikipedia

The free encyclopedia ‘Wikipedia’ – popular resource among the users of different age and social status, used for the search of information. Wikipedia has a lot of pages that might be interesting for the researchers, e.g. about famous scientists, scientific events, academic journals, etc. Pages of different ideas might be enhanced by the links to the researches of scientists who developed those ideas and studied those concepts.

We invite our researchers to join editing and creating Wikipedia pages. The Library consultants might help you to:

  • Create/edit page of the researcher in the encyclopedia
  • Create/edit page in the category «Видання КПІ»
  • Add main works to the page of scientist
  • Add citation to the paged of particular concepts or ideas

To create the Igor Sikorsky KPI researcher page you need the following information: general information about the scientist (year and place of birth, academic degree, academic honors), circle of academic interests, main dates of life and scientific activity, information about education, working, scientific and public activity, list of publications, the most important works, prizes, awards.

To create the page of Igor Sikorsky KPI publication, you will need general information about the publication (date of foundation, subjects, ISSN, frequency, founder, publisher), the field of study and problematic, editorial board, structure, access policy to the papers, indexation in the databases, contact information.

Consultations on editing your profile and creating pages you can receive at the Center for Education and Research Support (KPI Library, 4th Floor, room 4.4).
