About White Rose Research Online

White Rose Research Online (WRRO) houses research outputs from the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The repository aims to:

  • promote the impact of research output from the White Rose Consortium partners
  • make research easy to find through Google and other general and academic search service
  • provide a long term home for research outputs
  • bring research to new audiences, inside and outside academia
  • add to the growing, worldwide body of openly available scholarly content

To include your research outputs in the repository, simply register (select "create account" above) and input your publications details. Please note, University of Leeds staff should deposit their work via the University's Research Information System, Symplectic. (http://publications.leeds.ac.uk).

Please see the copyright information page.

What can be placed in the repository?

The emphasis of the repository is on research papers which have been or are in the process of being published. One of the main reasons for providing an open access repository is to increase access to those material which would normally be held behind a subscription barrier. Hence the emphasis on journal literature. However, a range of outputs can be deposited.

Eligible outputs should:

  • have at least one White Rose author
  • be published or have been accepted for publication or be "REF type" materials for your subject area
  • have copyright clearance for self-archiving (more detailed guidance on copyright is available)

In the main, the repository holds journal papers, conference papers and book chapters. However, the scope of the repository is under review. If there are additional materials you would like to deposit, please contact the Repository Officer (r.e.proudfoot@leeds.ac.uk)

Formats

Send us whatever you have! For public dissemination, we generally use PDF but for preservation purposes it is useful to have files in the "native" format - though obscure formats may pose particular preservation challenges.

A link to information about the JISC RepositoryNet programme

This repository is contributing to JISC RepositoryNet.
The aim of JISC RepositoryNet is to help form an interoperable network of repositories. It will do this by providing UK universities and colleges with access to trusted and expert information about repositories and by supporting some key services that form building blocks for a network of repositories.

History

White Rose Research Online (previously the White Rose Consortium ePrints Repository) was originally created as part of the JISC/CURL funded SHERPA (Securing a Hybrid Environment for Research Preservation and Access) project. A description of the project, including a list of the other Universities involved, can be found on the SHERPA web site http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/
