Why use the Repository?

Anyone who wants to improve their research visibility and citation rate.

Edinburgh Napier University staff and research students are required to place in the repository accepted texts of documents being published, together with texts of papers given at conferences. 

To prepare for the next REF, academic staff are required to deposit digital copies of refereed and accepted research documents.

Research associates, research assistants, research students and other members of University staff can also deposit digital copies of refereed and accepted research documents.

Research Excellence Framework (REF)

To ensure you are ready for the next REF, deposit the author accepted manuscript of your journal article or conference paper (published with an ISSN) in the repository within three months of being accepted. 

You can also add a copy of the Letter of Acceptance using the Add file option on the Files tab. We will ensure the letter remains private. 

If you have completed your deposit but want to add evidence of acceptance at a later date send it to and we will add it for you.
