About UEA Digital Repository

UEA Digital Repository is an ''open access'' repository of research publications and other research output containing the details of published research produced by University of East Anglia staff.

Academic staff members add details of research output conducted during the course of their work at UEA to the University’s Current Research Information System (CRIS) - PURE - and these are then automatically uploaded to UEA Digital Repository.

The repository also holds UEA's collection of e-theses uploaded by the Library.

The repository contains:

  • Bibliographic information about UEA's research output (metadata)
  • Full text for many research articles, sample book chapters, working papers and monographs.
  • PhD theses

The repository is intended to provide long-term, public, free access to these materials on the web, subject to strict Terms and Conditions.

UEA Digital Repository is managed by the Library and RIN, in collaboration with ITCS.

This site is powered by EPrints 3, free software developed by the University of Southampton.
