Institutional repositories feature strongly in open access developments across the world, but arguably the first successful repository was subject-based (i.e. Arxiv) and some subject communities continue to favour a subject approach, as in the UKPMC development. What are the respective advantages to researchers of the institutional or the subject approach to repository development? The ability to link to related text and to data are likely to be significant factors. Hopefully harvesting systems will enable researchers to have the best of both institutional and subject worlds, but some communities will continue to give priority to one or the other approach.
