Our guide to Research Repository UCD

What Types of Material Does Research Repository UCD Accept?

We accept the final accepted peer-reviewed drafts (or final drafts where not peer-reviewed) of the following:

  • Journal articles
  • Conference publications
  • Books and book chapters
  • Technical reports
  • Working papers
  • Government publications written by UCD authors
  • Patents
  • Reviews
  • Scholarly contributions to newspaper/magazine

Can My School Submit a Series of Working Papers / Technical Reports?

Yes you can - we can set up a separate collection for sets of Working Papers within the School Collection. This means that the papers will:

  • Bypass the copyright checking stage (as the Copyright will already be with the School)
  • Be kept as a separate browsable collection, with a unique name

We can organise a bulk upload where applicable. Please contact Joseph Greene, Repository Librarian ( for more details.

Can I Submit Older Publications?

Older material may be submitted to Research Repository UCD. We will check the copyright policy as with any other submissions.

When our traffic is high, we may prioritise the most recently published items and items required to be made open access by their funder in terms of what gets through first.

If your material is only available in print format we can accept a scanned version, provided you have copyright.
