The Cream of Science Project aims to encourage open access publication of the work of UPM scientists. As is the case in other European countries, especially the Netherlands, England and Germany, renowned scientists have been invited to deposit all their work in the institutional archive, as an example of their support for scientific dissemination and the Open Archives Initiative.
Under the Cream of Science Project, the UPM Digital Archive presents the biography and full text of the scientific production of nine of its professors. The teachers in question are: Amable Liñán, Francisco García Olmedo, Pedro Navascués, Fernando de Terán, José Antonio Martín Pereda, Enrique Alarcón, Juan Ramón Sanmartín, Antonio Fernández Alba and Alberto Campo Baeza.
On consulting the UPM Digital Archive in relation to the academic work of the architect Professor Alberto Campo Baeza, who is currently ETSAM Emeritus Professor at the UPM, we find 501 references, 112,530 downloads and 86,901 visits.
The UPM Digital Archive houses in digital format the academic and scientific documentation (theses, books, articles, etc.) generated at the institution and makes them accessible through the internet, within the framework of the Budapest Open Access Initiative and the Berlin Declaration, to which the Polytechnic University of Madrid is a signatory.
The UPM Digital Archive documents can be accessed via reputable search engines such as Google, Google Academics, Yahoo or Scirus and via OAI recognized harvesters such as E-science, DRRD, the Recolecta platform (REBIUN-FECYT), Driver or Oaister.
The UPM Digital Archive is an open repository that can be freely consulted by the public.
