DASH; Open Access Repository

What is DASH?

A central, open-access repository of research by members of the Harvard community.

DASH enlarges the audience and impact of your work. Authors who deposit in DASH have access to on-demand metrics and receive monthly reports about their readership. Deposited works receive persistent URLs, are comprehensively indexed by search engines, including Google and Google Scholar, reach academic and non-academic readers who may not have access to the original publications, and are preserved by the Harvard Library.

Making your work open access in DASH is as simple as completing our quick submit form. We also welcome bulk deposits and offer CV scraping services. Simply contact OSC if you are interested. OSC will do the legal legwork for all submissions.

The OSC is pleased to offer a robust suite of services to support you and your scholarship. Visit our For Authors page to learn more.



TagTeam is an open-source tagging platform and feed aggregator developed for the Harvard Open Access Project (HOAP) at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society under the direction of Peter Suber.

In addition to ordinary social tagging and bookmarking, TagTeam supports tag contributions from multiple platforms (“interoperable tagging”), the evolution of standard tag vocabularies (“folksonomy in, ontology out”), and boolean feed aggregation (“remix feeds”). Every tag and search publishes a feed in RSS, Atom, and JSON. TagTeam can subscribe to feeds from other platforms, and remix them with its own feeds. It stores all its tag records for deduping, export, preservation, modification, and search.

TagTeam was initially developed to meet the needs of the Open Access Tracking Project (OATP). But it’s now a general-purpose tool for open, tag-based research projects on any topic. OATP is now just one of many hubs in TagTeam.

The Harvard instance of TagTeam is limited to academic or research projects. However the code is open and anyone may host other instances elsewhere.
