Before you start, please test all options in our test instance, the Phaidra Sandbox!


How can I archive my scientific object in Phaidra OA?

  1. please, clearify the right to your object
  2. use your u: account of University of Vienna for LogIn
  3. select object from your file list
  4. describe your object with metadata and choose a free license, such as CC BY (note: a free license can not be changed anymore!)
  5. save all metadata (please note: object can't be deleted anymore!)
