The IT Carlow Institutional Repository (http://repository.itcarlow.ie) is an online, open access collection of research output by academic staff, researchers and students of IT Carlow. The content is made fully and freely available in accordance with copyright holder permissions. Research materials are centrally stored and preserved and the open access repository showcases the Institute’s intellectual output. Open access to the results of research enhances the visibility and the impact of the work, the author and IT Carlow.
The IT Carlow Institutional Repository is part of Research@THEA which is an open access repository that launched in 2017 as a service for capturing, storing, preserving and showcasing the research output of Institutes of Technology in Ireland. The Research@THEA repository is available at http://research.thea.ie/.
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 IT Carlow Institutional Repository holds peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed research output from the Institute including: journal articles, conference items, reports, reviews and working papers. All new research Masters and Doctoral theses awarded by the Institute, and not covered by embargo, are also made available on the IT Carlow Institutional Repository.
We recommend that all academic staff and researchers deposit their research output in the repository. This will ensure your research gets maximum exposure as IT Carlow Institutional Repository is indexed by Google Scholar, Bing, Google, Microsoft Academic and all other major search engines. Many funders including Science Foundation Ireland, the Irish Research Council and the EU via Horizon 2020 require researchers to make their research publications available to all via open access within certain time periods.
