What is the Repository ?

The Repository is a University database providing details and full-text of University research outputs and electronic theses, which includes:

  • full-text publications by University staff (journal articles, conference papers, book chapters etc.);
  • full-text electronic theses deposited by research degree postgraduates.

Please note that some of these full-text files will be under an embargo, i.e. they won't be publicly available until after a certain time has elapsed.

Who can access it?

Access to research outputs and electronic theses in the Repository is available to everyone. You do not have to log in to view or download them, rather access by using the search facility on the Repository home page. You will also find details of items in the Repository via general web search engines.

Users can search for items and records using the ‘Search the Repository’ box or you can Browse, either ‘by Year',  'by Author' or 'by Type'.

Items in the Repository can also be accessed through links via Library Search or search engines, such as Google.

Full-text availability of research outputs via the Repository is principally through the Green Open Access (self-archiving) route – see more about Open Access.

If you cannot access an item / record in the Repository it may be that it is confidential, embargoed or access is restricted for a specific period, in some cases, indefinitely. If you have queries please contact the Open Research Team

For depositors, guidance on adding publications data and full-text deposits is available via Liverpool Elements and Datacat (the Research Data Catalogue).
