Support for Researchers at the University of Derby: UDORA

Introduction to UDORA

What is UDORA?

The University of Derby Online Research Archive (UDORA) is a publicly accessible database of University of Derby (UoD) research publications and other research output.

An institutional repository such as UDORA gives you the ability to disseminate material previously published in peer reviewed journals and also material that may not be suitable for publication in a traditional journal, such as conference posters and presentations. However, all material intended for submission must have undergone some form of critical review process to ensure that all material available for access under the University of Derby name adheres to the same high level of quality. The University has a take down policy which you can read below. 

More information about how to submit to UDORA can be found below or email If you are a research student and want to upload your thesis, then please contact the Research Office in the first instance. If you want to upload other content, such as a journal article, please contact your Director of Studies.
