What can be deposited in RERO DOC
Document typesThe types of documents considered as standard that can be deposited in RERO DOC by means of custom-made web forms are the following, all of them of perennial nature:
- PhD theses
- postgraduate certificates
- articles (preprints, postprints)
- research reports
- periodicals (newspapers, journals)
- sound recordings
Libraries also have the possibility of depositing digitalized collections.
File formatsThe list of allowed file formats follows the recommendation of the Conference of the Swiss University Libraries in the document Convention sur les Thèses électroniques.
Size of the filesIn the current version of RERO DOC, viewing a document implies its complete download. For a fast (or acceptable) download time, it is recommended to reduce the file size. Although the maximum allowed size is 200 MB, such large documents should remain an exception.
The following table gives an idea of the download time for different file sizes and different types of connection:
|File size||2MB||20MB||200MB (RERO DOC limit)|
|GPRS: mobile phone||5min||1h||10h|
|DSL Standard Min||12s||2min 30s||25min|
|DSL Standard Max||3s||36s||6min|
Note:DSL speed estimation is based on a standard subscription (5000kbits/s maximum and 1200 kbits/s minimum), GPRS (53kbits/s) and Hotspot 2000 kbits/s.
Multivio will relax this limitation.
