About the Repository

The Ulster Institutional Repository (UIR) provides a digital collection of the research output of the University and facilitates an open access system of storage and retrieval of information from the digitised content. The major benefit to the university is in enabling the dissemination of scholarly work in a coherent and barrier-free manner, whilst also contributing to a managed approach to research output nationally.

Material in the repository will conform with the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting. This will ensure research output can be found using such Internet search engines as Google Scholar. University researchers will benefit from the increased impact of their work and a central archive from their research output. The repository is cumulative and perpetual.

This repository is powered by EPrints 3, free software developed by the University of Southampton.
