There is some confusion about the situation with regard to the University Research Publications Service. This document attempts to clarify things.

The Research Publications Service joins the Edinburgh Research Archive (ERA) and the Publications Repository (PR) together to promote a consistent deposit process for research papers, whether or not they are to be available as open-access documents.

  • The Publications Repository is a closed repository, accessible only from the University of Edinburgh domain. It was adapted from the repository created for the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), with the addition of a new management tool, and can hold all the University’s research outputs.

  • The Edinburgh Research Archive is the University’s open-access repository and makes author copies of research papers available to other researchers, while publisher versions of the same papers are hidden behind a subscription wall.
