DFG funded project at Marburg University to establish an open access repository for academic publications within the field of film and media studies. MediaRep hopes to ensure the long-term digital preservation of open access publications, the consistent use of metadata and the implementation of archiving principles according to internationally recognized standards. Additionally, MediaRep will comprise not only text-based documents but will also (in a pilot study) explore the options to include and reference relevant audiovisual resources, such as e.g. video essays, images, research data.
