Abstract

Subject repositories are open web collections of working papers or
manuscript copies of published scholarly articles, specific to particular
scientific disciplines. The first repositories emerged already in the early
1990=92s and in some fields of science they have become an important channe=
l
for the dissemination of research results. Using quite strict inclusion
criteria 56 subject repositories were identified from a much larger number
indexed in two repository indexes. A closer study of these demonstrated a
huge variety in sizes, organizational models, functions and topics. When
they first started to emerge subject repositories catered to a strong
market demand, but the later development of Internet search engines, the
rapid growth of institutional repositories and the tightening up of journal
publisher OA policies seems to be slowing down their growth.
