De Montfort Open Research Archive (DORA)

De Montfort Open Research Archive (DORA) is De Montfort University's research repository. It forms the primary public and institutional record of DMU research outputs. 

DORA currently lists over 11,000 items, and the breadth of research at DMU means that these include articles, conference papers, books, book chapters, and other material available in a digital form. The record for each item contains descriptive information as well as, where possible, a version of the final research output.  DMU's policy on Managing Open Access reflects the move towards Open Access and it is now mandatory that all journal articles, conference papers and related text outputs include a full text version.  More details can be found in the documents below.

Since January 2009 electronic deposit of PhD theses has also been mandatory and to date over 500 theses are available from DORA.
