Library Research Support: Open Research: Durham Research Online (DRO)

This guide is intended to provide advice and support on open access research, including guidance around Durham Research Online (DRO), open access publishing, research data management and related topics.

Durham Research Online (DRO) is Durham University’s institutional Open Access repository. DRO contains details of published outputs arising from research conducted at Durham. Publication types include journal articles, conference papers, book chapters and reports. The full-text of many items is available, but some content is under temporary embargo because of authors' copyright agreements. Embargo expiry dates are shown on DRO records.

DRO content can be use for non-commercial, personal study except where the licence displayed on the DRO record indicates otherwise.
