LBS Research Online is now live!

The School’s new institutional repository, LBS Research Online, is now live.

A repository is an online collection of the School’s research outputs that will include journal articles and conference proceedings and eventually book chapters and theses.

The need for a repository is driven by the Open Access agenda. We must ensure that from 1 April that all research outputs are made eligible for the next Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise by depositing them in LBS Research Online within 90 days of their acceptance for publication.

The repository already contains publication information for many journal articles that have been published since the last REF submission in 2014; you can browse research outputs by author, read the article itself (just follow the ‘DOI link’ on the abstract page), view the most recent articles deposited and find out more about who is citing, tweeting and reading the School’s research.

Read more about why we are making our research more accessible or learn about Open Access in less than four minutes. Find support and guidance for our researchers at our new website or email queries to openaccess@london.edu.
