ArODES HES-SO, the Open Archive of the faculties of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (HES-SO) was initiated in 2015 under the impetus of the Business, Management and Services faculty. It was then extended to all faculties of HES-SO in 2017.

The objectives of ArODES are the following :

The HEG-GE library is the business owner of ArODES and makes sure the data recorded by the various actors of the HES-SO libraries are consistent. It also provides information and advice on the way to publish in Open Access.

The HES-SO network staff can connect to ArODES with their SWITCH AAI login in order to access publications which distribution is otherwise restricted due to copyright.

For any question about ArDOES, please contact the HEG-GE library at arodes@hes-so.ch.
