Open Access Anthropology Repositories

16.11.2010: Welcome to this new and incomplete overview over digital libraries and repositories with free access to papers and theses. Most of them are in English (some in German and Scandinavian languages) and mostly based on the overview at Open Doar.

Are there repositories missing, for example in other languages? Let me know! See also the overview over anthropology journals

2.2. 2016: Correcting of bad links has started

1.9.2019: It is difficult to keep this overview up to date as these repositories are getting moved around all the time. I hope the people in charrge of this will one day understand the importance of permanent links
