UCA Research Online is UCA’s open access research repository, providing free online access to research outputs by UCA staff and PhD students. A research output could be a book chapter, journal article or conference paper that you have written, or your creative work exhibited at a gallery. Making your work open access will increase its visibility and help to raise your profile, and perhaps increase your work's citation rates. Open access is also a requirement for the Research Excellence Framework (REF), which is the national system of assessment for research quality in universities.
UCA staff and research students can login and upload their outputs. In addition, research students need to email approval from their supervisor to email@example.com.
UCA Research Online also holds UCA PhD theses. Your thesis will then be findable via search engines and academic databases like the British Library’s EThOS and Google Scholar, so people can discover your work and learn what you do. The full text will be downloadable in PDF form, but you will still own the copyright and are free to take up any offers of publication. For help, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
