Proportion of Repositories by Continent - Worldwide

Total = 3519 repositories

OpenDOAR - 24-Jun-2018

This chart is based on the number of repositories in each Continent. However, some organisations have two or more repositories - over 20 in some cases - and this arguably skews the results.

For a different viewpoint, please see the equivalent chart for Repository Organisations, in which each organisation only counts once, regardless of how many repositories it hosts.

For further data, please see the corresponding table of repositories sorted by country.
