The global trend of establishing digital repositories in institutions of higher education has accelerated as they are becoming important to research and scientific institutions for evaluating criteria. Institutional repositories can also help promote the practical impacts of research, which is not only beneficial to the community but can help demonstrate the importance of the work and enhance the researcher’s reputation. As of August 2019, the Directory of Open Access Repositories holds 4 140 repositories, including 15 from Algeria, consisting theses, conference papers, books and journals. This paper aims to discover the benefits and impacts of institutional repositories and their role in supporting scientific research and enhancing the global visibility and impact of grey literature through answering the following questions: What are the best practices to improve the visibility of grey literature? How can we achieve high grey literature visibility in Algerian institutional repositories?
