The research repository is a fully-managed software as a service (SaaS) solution. It provides a multi-content repository to manage all your institution’s research outputs (research articles, datasets and theses) including metadata-only records and those outputs that don’t have access to subject or funder data repositories.
It is the most connected repository on the market with an open interoperability framework using message APIs that permit integration with a wide range of institutional systems including current research information systems (CRIS), digital preservation systems and external scholarly communications services.
The service supports all file types and has an intuitive interface so it’s easy to use.

Help with standards compliance and good practice
Next-generation research repositories offer simpler, more cost-effective ways to manage, store and share your digital research outputs. Choosing the right one will demonstrate to research funders and publishers that you’re committed to open scholarship and to open research practices.
Our research repository solution makes it easier for you to adopt open scholarship practices and demonstrate your compliance.
We’ve based our service on open sector standards and optimised it to support the discovery and reuse of research.
It helps your institution play its part in national and international initiatives that promote open scholarship such as Plan S and the FAIR principles, building its reputation and extending the impact of its research. It even has a ‘FAIR checker’ to make sure your research data is ‘findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable’ according to FAIR principles.
