SOAS Research Online

A Free Database of the Latest Research by SOAS Academics and PhD Students

[skip to content]

SOAS Research Online is a free, publicly accessible repository of the research outputs of SOAS, University of London. The repository contains both full text papers and metadata only (descriptive) records of research carried out by SOAS staff members. Full text materials will be made available where copyright allows otherwise the reference details can be deposited and a link to the online location of the research paper will be included (if available).

SOAS staff members only may add research materials to the repository. If you are a SOAS staff member please login using your SOAS staff ID and password to start uploading your research. If you are a member of staff at SOAS but you do not have a valid login, please contact the Repository Administrator

The majority of journal publishers retain copyright of the publisher-produced PDF through the copyright transfer agreement. However most publishers have now updated their copyright policies to allow the final draft version of a paper to be held on open access repositories. The SHERPA/ROMEO site provides an updated and easily accessible list of publisher's copyright policies. SOAS researchers are encouraged to keep their final draft of publication as they may be able to add this version to the repository. The repository is easy to use and there are several options to store the full text of your research without making it publicly available.

What are the benefits for researchers of depositing research publications?
