Description Professional branch information in the form of scientific articles, publications, monographies and other professional works of the academic staff is necessary to store within the university while having an access to it at the same time. Therefore, a demand for creating a n institutional repository (i.e. full texts) of scientific and professional works has been noticed at Masaryk University. For up to now, full texts have not been stored systematically, homogeneously and to an overall extent. What was registered consistently were only the metadata for these professional works. The discussions on the topic of plagiarism in professional publications have also contributed to creating our own fund of employees' works, and typically also of those of doctoral students. The contribution will present the assets of the MU institutional repository based on the current university plagiarism-tracing publication system. Most importantly, it will list the possibilities of quotation recording, the information about the "impact factor" of the periodical the work has been published in, the usage of the Creative Commons licences within the frame of the Open access, the advantages of the carefully worked-out system of access rights and the plagiarism-tracing service. The problems with plagiarism-tracing have been dealt with by Masaryk University since 2006 when the users of the Information System of Masaryk University (IS MU) could start using the functions of tracing similarities (potential plagiarisms) not only in theses and e-learning materials but in all documents stored in the system. In 2008, the joint initiative of most public universities in the Czech Republic resulted in the development of the National Register of Theses and plagiarism-tracing system, which is nowadays used by 29 universities (2 from Slovakia). This was followed by the start of the system tracing plagiarisms in seminar papers in 2009, used by 19 universities and even secondary schools. A large number of Czech universities are also interested in continuing the interuniversity control of plagiarisms in the field of scientific and professional publications.
