Institutional Digital Repository

EspaceINRS is Institut national de la recherche scientifique’s open-access institutional repository. It contains master’s theses and PhD dissertations, research reports, scientific articles, book chapters, and other documents for which INRS holds the distribution rights.


The electronic documents deposited, indexed, and stored in EspaceINRS can be easily found with search engines and online tools such as Google Scholar, helping ensure that the knowledge and research findings produced by our faculty and students reach a broad audience.

Espace INRS complies with Open Archive Initiative (OAI) standards for institutional archives. It enables all INRS professors to meet their obligations towards the national and provincial granting agencies: th Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and Fonds de recherche du Québec.
