Collection of research outputs: Contribute to Research Outputs Repository (ROR)

Submissions via ROR - email notification service

  • The Library receives weekly alerts of new research outputs found in Scopus and Web of Science. These are automatically processed into ROR, providing the researchers have included the University of South Australia in the byline
  • Accepted manuscripts are not required when the research output has been published as gold open access, for example a journal article published in PLoS, or one of the BMC journals.

Manual submission to ROR

  • For research outputs that are not indexed in the databases listed above, there are online forms for journal articles, books, book chapters, conference papers, and reports, where the information can be submitted.
  • Use the deposit option via the Research Outputs Repository.
