University of Glamorgan Online Research Repository
Why Online Repositories?
Higher education institutions throughout the world are now either operating or creating online repositories for the managed storage of their research outputs. Most UK HEIs have operational repositories. Their benefits include:
- marked increases in readership for work made available through the global medium of the Internet
- provision of a globally accessible showcase for the best of an institution’s research work
- ease of access to research for students, colleagues, and interested members of the public
- unified management of an HEI’s overall research output that would otherwise be dispersed across faculties and departments
University of Glamorgan Research Repository
The University of Glamorgan’s Research Repository provides open access to a wide range of publications, pre-publications and other research outputs by our academic staff and reserach students. It includes journal articles, conference papers, book chapters and multimedia content from all Faculties of the University of Glamorgan and from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
Go to the Research Repository
The University’s Research Management Information System (RMIS) is the primary source of information for all our research activity. When details of a research output are entered into the RMIS the information is exported to the repository, including the output itself if available and subject to rights checking by LCSS staff. When submitting output details, please include your final peer-reviewed draft and/or publisher-created file.
Full details of the Output Submission Process are availble from the University’s Research web pages.
The repository also includes recent PhD and MPhil theses, and Masters by Research. Our Research Regulations require deposit of an electronic version of the thesis (as well as hard copy versions), following the award of the degree. Library staff are responsible for uploading theses into the repository.
Theses in the repository are automatically harvested by the National Library of Wales and are available via their catalogue alongside theses from other universities in Wales. The theses may also be accessed at the UK’s Electronic Theses Online Service (EThOS).
