Now is the time to reimagine the research estate

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed an opportunity to better support the UK research and innovation sector in the management of its research estate.

We're seeking input to garner community views on the potential for a next-generation digital approach to the management of the research estate. What are the opportunities to provide better utilisation, encourage higher quality multidisciplinary research and reduce costs?

Read our blog on reimagining the research estate.

Manage your research outputs in a single, Plan S-compliant system

We know you need simple, cost-effective ways to manage, store and share your digital research outputs. In addition, you need to meet Plan S, and other funder and publisher mandates, for open scholarship. And we know you'd like to lift some of the administrative burden around open access publishing.

In partnership with the UK research sector, we've developed a multi-content research repository to meet these needs. It's the most interoperable system on the market, which makes it easier to report against funder mandates and reduces re-keying information between systems.

Connecting brilliant minds of the past with researchers shaping the future

You can now access newly-formed collection, the British Association for the Advancement of Science - Collections on the History of Science (1830s-1970s) on the Wiley Digital Archive Platform.
