5 Steps to Adding Your Research to the Repository

How do I access the repository?

All you need is your staff login to gain access to the repository at /cgi/users/home. Once you have logged on you will be taken to your User Area where you can begin to add your research. Click on ‘New Item’ to create a new repository record.

What can I add?

You can add a range of research outputs, from journal articles to compositions. The item type you choose determines how the rest of the record will display and what information you will need to provide.

What can I upload?

You will need to find out whether you have permission to put your published material onto the repository. Sherpa provides reliable information on publishers’ copyright policies, but if you are unsure, contact the Repository team.

What details do I need?

Try to provide as much bibliographic information as possible when filling in your record. The information you will need to provide will differ depending on what you are depositing, but the record will clearly tell you what information is required. You also need to choose subject headings, a maximum of 3 is recommended.

How do I display items?

Each record has to be checked by a repository administrator before it can be placed in the live archive. Once this has happened, the record will be searchable on the Repository, Summon and Google (Scholar). It will also feed into your staff profile page.
