Abstract: This research study aims to study the awareness and use of institutional repositories by the academicians in Maharashtra. The academicians include different categories of users, viz., Professor, Associate Professor and Assistant Professor, Scientists, Senior Scientists, Research Scholars and Post-Doctorate Fellows of the selected institutions. A total of 1021 questionnaires were distributed, and the total response of 584 responses have been used for analysis purpose, and it comprises a total response rate of 12.67% of the total population of 4611. The study outcomes show that majority of the users from Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences and Pure Science discipline prefer to publish their research in open access journals and self-archive in institutional repositories. The study found that the majority of the users prefer to use Journal articles, Research papers, Theses and Dissertation and conference proceedings. However, due to lack of knowledge of submission process a considerable percentage of users with mean value 3.88 and standard deviation 1.953 were not self-archiving in IR. The study recommends promotion of self-archiving by conducting seminars, workshops, and tutorials for the academicians.
