UAL Research Online is the online showcase of the research produced at University of the Arts London. We hold, manage, share and preserve the research material produced by the University's researchers, and ensure that it reaches the widest possible audience. Items in the collection are globally available and free to view and download by anyone connected to the Internet.
Built by the JISC-funded Kultur project, and launched in February 2010, UAL Research Online is the first repository specifically designed for research in creative arts design and media. It currently contains journal articles, monographs, book chapters, conference papers, conference proceedings, exhibitions, video, audio, images, websites, and selected post-graduate theses. It is also able to manage software, datasets, workshop presentations, and patents. It does not hold student work, with the exception of approved PhD theses. UAL's teaching and learning materials can be found at Jorum Open, the UK-wide repository of free online educational resources.
As an Open Access research repository, UAL Research Online satisifes the requirements of many UK funding bodies (e.g.,the UK research councils, the Wellcome Trust, and the European Research Council) to make the results of publically-funded research available to the public.
UAL Research Online will also be used for research management within the university, such as research profiling, staff appraisals, and the university's submission to the upcoming Research Excellence Framework.
