Accessing and Using Open Access Resources and UDORA - Skills Podcast

Introduction to UDORA

What is UDORA?

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

An institutional repository such as UDORA gives you the ability to disseminate material 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 peer review process to ensure that all material available for access under the University of Derby name adheres to a 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 you can 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.
