Open Access

UDORA

The University of Derby Online Research Archive (UDORA) is an Open Access, publicly accessible repository of University of Derby (UoD) research publications and other research outputs. It is how staff and students at the University can achieve the Green route to Open Access. 

An Open Access repository such as UDORA gives you the ability to disseminate material published in peer reviewed journals and academic books to a diverse and wide ranging audience. Material that may not be suitable for publication in a traditional journal, such as conference posters and presentations can also be deposited in UDORA. However, all material intended for submission must have undergone some form of peer review process to ensure that all outputs deposited in the repository, 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. 

If you are a research student and want to upload your thesis, then please contact the Student Research Office in the first instance. If you want to upload other content, such as a journal article, please contact your Director of Studies. 

More information about how to submit to UDORA can be found below or you can email UDORA@derby.ac.uk.
