RShare Digital Repository

About RShare


RShare is Toronto Metropolitan University’s new institutional repository and research collaboration platform for research data and scholarly outputs produced by members of the Toronto Metropolitan University community and their collaborators.  This repository disseminates and preserves the scholarly record of the university and makes it available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner.  It is also the home of the University’s online archive of PhD dissertations and Masters theses.

RShare supports over 300 different file types (text, images, video, audio, 3D models, datasets) and allows for the viewing of these files within the browser. RShare hosts articles, data sets, theses, dissertations, technical reports, working papers, conference papers, and videos which can be made openly available to anyone on the web.

Researchers who deposit in RShare dramatically increase the discoverability of their work, and all posts stringently comply with funder and publisher requirements. Traditional metrics such as views and downloads along with Altmetrics (social media reach) are available for all items.



RShare provides access to TMU research for our community and the world. The Library RShare platform enables knowledge mobilisation by gathering, organising, highlighting and disseminating TMU’s creative and scholarly research output.
