The Institute of Information Science and Technologies (ISTI), an institute of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), supports the principle of open access to its research outputs.

The Institutes preferred route to open access is self-archiving in the institutional repository People (see ISTI Open Access Policy).

The ISTI Open Portal collects and makes visible the scientific production of the Institute.

The system is dedicated to the enrichment of the contents of the scientific contributions deposited in People in order to improve their exploitation.

The software, based on open-source D-Net technology, aggregates and processes information from different sources distributed over the network.
