BioMed Central's Open Repository has welcomed its first South American client, the Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), based in Lima, Peru.

Open Repository, a registered service provider of DuraSpace, provides a service to help organisations build, maintain and host DSpace repositories.

The Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) is a private and independent educational institution, established in 1994, whose aim is to educate, perform research and promote knowledge, culture and development in Peru.

Its mission is to produce innovative leaders with the integrity and vision to transform Peru. With this in mind, UPC decided that Open Repository was the ideal service to fulfil the academic knowledge management requirements for its Institute.

Bev Acreman, BioMed Central's commercial director, said: 'I am delighted that Open Repository has been selected as the solution to UPC's desire for international discoverability for their research output. We are proud of the flexible options we are able to provide to a growing repository such as this.'
