The fundamental strategy of the open-access movement has resulted in the deposit or auto-filing in open access repositories, which constitute digital files of intellectual products of a scientific and academic nature. According to the sources consulted, there was no reference to a repository dedicated to hosting the results of student scientific activity, which has been considered as one of the 3 pillars of contemporary higher education. An analysis was performed on international regulatory documents, as well as in the Scopus, SciELO, PubMed, Redalyc, DOAJ and Google Academic databases, in order to present the theoretical foundations for the formulation and design of a student research repository. In order to develop this paper, a series of theoretical methods were used to propose the theoretical foundations for the formulation and design of a student research repository. There are many advantages for universities and health institutions in terms of enhancing the development of their students through research, knowledge transfer, technology transfer, and continuing education. The development of a repository should help gain access and the use of information generated by student research in the health sciences of the country. This result of knowledge management, integrated into the nascent group of repositories at the national level, will allow a greater presence in the various global networks, facilitating the visibility of research developed by the students, to the benefit of the quality of higher medical education and the preservation of their institutional memory.
