The UDORA system was officially launched by Professor Philip Plowden, Pro Vice Chancellor with responsibility for University research.

Researchers' hard work and discoveries have been made more accessible to all with the launch of the University of Derby Online Research Archive (UDORA).

The web-based system was officially launched this month (December 6) by Professor Philip Plowden, Pro Vice Chancellor with responsibility for University research, at a gathering of university researchers, and Learning Enhancement and Innovation (LEI) staff.

UDORA is now live for those within and outside the University, and can be found at website link

Users can search for papers by Derby researchers by title, author, subject, date or collection. The immediate task for Derby academics is to deposit on the system around 1,200 peer reviewed academic journal articles produced by researchers here over the last four years, together with digitised versions of University PhD theses.

At the official launch Professor Plowden stressed the importance of UDORA in providing a vital means of promoting Derby's research to the wider world.

On behalf of his fellow researchers Professor Paul Weller - Head of Research and Commercial Development for Education, Health & Sciences - paid tribute to the project as a successful collaborative venture between LEI and academics.
