Abstract:Open access to research products generated in HEI (Higher Education Institutions), is a commitment to make the research results reach to society, as well as the contributions to knowledge generation. However, the language used in research works is usually very specialized, and therefore, its understanding by students and society in general is complicated.
The objective of this paper was to search mechanisms to bring the research results in a simple and clear way to the general public. The results show that the scientific monographs are an ideal alternative to offer a look at the research carried out in the HEI. Scientific monographs constitute an open educational resource available to students within institutional repositories.
Methodology for the creation of scientific monographs includes the documentary compilation of research reports, articles published in indexed journals, papers presented at national and international conferences, among others. After that, an analysis and synthesis work is carried out with the objective of summarizing the research in order to make the graphic design of the scientific monograph in such a way that it is attractive to the reader, as well as offering the objectives, relevant data, results and conclusions generated on the research.
Finally, under an open access license, the monographs are made available to society in general through the Institutional Repository of the Lerma Campus of Metropolitan Autonomous University.
Keywords: Open educational resources, scientific monographs, Insitutional Repository.
