The Open Archive of the faculties of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland HES-SO (ArODES HES-SO) was born in 2015 of the will of the Business management and services faculty, and was 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 ensures the consistency of the data entered by the various actors of our libraries. It also provides information and advice about how to publish in Open Access.

Staff of the schools member of HES-SO network can connect with their SWITCH AAI login in order to access publications, whose diffusion is restricted due to copyright.

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