What is Repositori UJI?

The purpose of the Universitat Jaume I Repository is to be the digital space of and for research in Castelló, a multidisciplinary portal that shows research, academic, institutional and learning results from UJI.. To do this, it archives, organises and disseminates electronic documents of any kind created by the members of the university community as a result of their academic, teaching, research and institutional activity.

It also includes digitised documentary material on the province of Castelló and other information resources from different institutions, like Spain-European Union Digital Archive (SEDAS).

The Repositori UJI is based on Dspace software, version 3.2.

    Search box

    Search tips:

    • When you enter a word in the search cell, the system will carry out a search for that word in all fields: TITLE, AUTHOR, KEY WORD, ABSTRACT, DESCRIPTION, IDENTIFIERS fields, even FULL TEXT of each document.

    • The system includes also singulars and plurals, different verb endings, accents, etc. in the search. Also the system automatically removed words as articles, prepositions and conjunctions in Spanish, Catalonian and English.

    • To search for more than one word the default boolean operator is AND, regardless of the field to which they belong.

    • To search for a exact sentence you need to put inverted commas at the beginning and the end of the sentence you want to search for. For example: "institutional documents".

    • Truncating: Using the asterisk (*) after the root of a word in the search shows all the words beginning with that root. For example: edu* will also show education, educational...

    • Boolean search (Boolean operators have to be written in capitals) :

      • AND – limits the search, finds documents containing the terms combined with this operator. For example: if you type "value AND education", you will obtain all the documents containing both words.

      • OR – extends the search, finds documents containing at least one of the terms combined using this operator. For example: if you type "value OR education", you will obtain all the documents containing either value or education.

      • NOT – limits the search, excludes unwanted words.

      • Parentheses can be used to group search terms together and in combination with different Boolean operators: For example: (value OR strategy) AND (education).
