Open Science

Open Access

The Ramon Llull University Management Board approved, in December 2016, the document Promoting open access at Ramon Llull University (Catalan version).


By adopting this document, the URL is committed to ensuring that members of its academic community can deposit their scholarly publications (journal articles, theses, reports, communications, scientific and technical documents, books, etc.) in an open access repository. The URL provides its space in the collective repository of the university system of Catalonia RECERCAT, in which has participated since 2012.



Ramon Llull actively promotes the publication of its research groups’ output in international and indexed journals, without obviating others with a strong tradition in Catalonia, especially in the social science and philosophy fields.


Publications by the university’s researchers can be consulted at the university’s research management tool GREC-URL and the Portal de la Recerca de Catalunya.


The URL also participates in RACO. It is an open access cooperative repository created in 2006, in which articles of Catalan scientific, cultural and scholarly journals can be consulted.


The main purpose of RACO is to increase the visibility and access to the magazines that includes and disseminate the scientific and academic production published in Catalan magazines.


The URL journals available at RACO are:


        Afinidad. Revista de química teórica y aplicada

        Aloma: revista de psicologia, ciències de l'educació i de l'esport Blanquerna

        Ars Brevis
