Our research outputs
The University of Sheffield makes many of the research outputs produced by our academics, such as journal papers, freely available via the White Rose Research Online database (or ‘repository’).
The emphasis of the repository is on research papers which have been or are in the process of being published. One of the main reasons for providing an open access repository is to increase access to those material which would normally be held behind a subscription barrier, and hence the emphasis on journal literature. However, the system also holds published conference papers, book chapters and working paper series.
