What the HKIEd Research Repository is

The HKIEd Research Repository collects, manages, preserves and showcases the research output of all academic, research and administrative staff of the Institute in one digital location. Records can be browsed by community, collection, title, author, date, subject and searchable by keywords. The Research Repository also provides access to an electronic copy of the material when available. It represents a major knowledge management resource of the Institute and demonstrates the range and level of research achievement of HKIEd staff.


The HKIEd Research Repository contributes significantly to the development of research capacity of the Institute by providing a single bibliographical database of staff research output. The key objectives of this single repository are:

  • To provide staff with immediate and convenient online access to the bibliographic citations, abstracts and, where available, the full-text of their published works;
  • To strengthen research capacity by providing a reference database of research publications of HKIEd staff;
  • To enable staff members to share their published and unpublished research works with colleagues;
  • To demonstrate the depth of the Institute's research attainments to stakeholders, such as external funding bodies, UGC and RAE; and
  • To provide staff a convenient platform for "self-archiving" their research and scholarly output.

What the HKIEd Research Repository includes

Currently the HKIEd Research Repository consists of over 13,400 records of citations dating back to 1994 and over 3,900 records are linked with full-text copies. Deposited materials includes scholarly books, chapters, journal articles and conference papers, representing an integral whole of the Institute's research output. To know more about the Repository, please go through the Online Tutorial for details.

To enhance staff to self-archive their research output in the HKIEd Research Repository, the Library is now launching a call to all academic, research and administrative staff to submit their research output records and where available the full-text version.
