What is ePrints Soton?


ePrints Soton is the University's Institutional Research Repository. It contains journal articles, books, PhD theses, conference papers, data, reports, working papers, art exhibitions and more. Records are created in PURE and automatically pushed through to ePrints.

The University has a policy that all research is recorded in our institutional repository, and that Accepted Manuscripts are uploaded and made available where possible.

ePrints Soton promotes research by making it available worldwide. It also feeds the publications section of the University staff web pages.
