What the EdUHK Research Repository is
The EdUHK Research Repository collects, manages, preserves and showcases the research output of all academic, research and administrative staff of the University 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 University and demonstrates the range and level of research achievement of EdUHK staff.
The EdUHK Research Repository contributes significantly to the development of research capacity of the University 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 EdUHK staff;
- To enable staff members to share their published and unpublished
research works with colleagues;
- To demonstrate the depth of the University'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 EdUHK Research Repository includes
Currently the EdUHK Research Repository consists of over 20,100 records of citations dating back to 1994 and over 5,700 records are linked with full-text copies. Deposited materials include scholarly books, chapters, journal articles and conference papers, representing an integral whole of the University's research output.
To enhance staff to self-archive their research output in the EdUHK 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. Staff can submit their records through email or contact us for details.
Staff are welcome to deposit a full-text version of their research output to the EdUHK Research Repository. Currently, most publishers will accept and allow authors to deposit papers published in their journals in open access
repositories, subject to certain
conditions. The SHERPA RoMEO database (http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php) provides a summary of copyright and archiving policies adopted by major publishers in the world. The OAKList database (http://www.oaklist.qut.edu.au) covers Australian publishers' copyright and open access policies as well. Staff are advised to read the publisher copyright policies on self-archiving and allowing use of their published materials in Repositories. You are most welcome to contact the EdUHK Research Repository team and we will be happy to check the copyright agreement related to any materials that you would like to deposit for you.
For any enquiries on submitting records or about the Research Repository, please contact the EdUHK Research Repository Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 2948 6575 or 2948 6593.
