The University of Limerick Institutional Repository (IR) is an open access database of published and unpublished work by UL faculty and researchers. The content is made fully and freely available in accordance with copyright holder permissions.
As the material is freely available online to anybody with access to the Internet, the potential readership of open access articles far exceeds that of articles where the full text is restricted to subscribers. This increased visibility can result in raising profiles and citations for researchers.
The ULIR holds peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed research output from the University including; journal articles, conference items, books and book chapters, reports, reviews, working papers, patents and datasets. All new research Masters and Doctoral theses awarded by the University, and not covered by embargo, are also made available on the ULIR.

RIAN is the outcome of a sectoral higher education project supported by the Irish Government's 'Strategic Innovation Fund'. Project planning was carried out by the seven Irish university libraries, and was supported by the Irish Universities Association (IUA).
The aim is to harvest the contents of the Institutional Repositories of Irish research institutes in order to make Irish research material more freely accessible, and to increase the research profiles of individual researchers and their institutions.

We recommend that all UL faculty and researchers deposit their research output in the repository.
