Apollo holds and provides access to the open-access research output of Cambridge University.

Apollo, the institutional repository of Cambridge University, is delivered and managed by the University Library's Office of Scholarly Communication.

The repository stores a range of content and provides different levels of access, but its primary focus is on providing open access to the University's research publications. Apollo forms an important part of the University's provision for meeting research funder requirements for open access, enabling 'Green' access to publications.

Over the past ten years, Apollo has participated in a number of externally funded projects intended to better understand researcher requirements or improve the services it offers. These include: Incremental, DataTrain and PrePARe, which resulted in the development of resources to support research data managementEPIC and Keeping Research Data Safe (KRDS), which focused on the repository's preservation services.
