The Edinburgh Napier Repository is an Open Access showcase for our research outputs.

As well as journal articles, conference papers and theses, we also have data sets, programs, images, scores, music, and exhibition catalogues in digital format.

Search the repository using the free text search box using keywords or author name. Then refine your search using the facets displayed on the left of the page.

The Repository helps us:

  • Increase the impact of the University’s research by making it more visible thus improving the citation rate
  • Encourage collaboration and raise academic profiles
  • Meet with funder and REF requirements 

Research outputs stored in the Repository are freely available to the public wherever possible (subject to any publisher copyright embargoes and restrictions). A “Request a copy” button allows you to request a copy for any file with restricted access.
