Open Access Publishing

Open Access Publishing at NUI Galway

  • NUI Galway’s policy on Open Access to Research Outputs, adopted by the Academic Council in October 2015, aims to promote open access to the University’s publications.
  • Authors of peer-reviewed articles and peer-reviewed conference papers resulting from research carried out at NUI Galway must deposit a copy in the ARAN (Access to Research at NUI Galway) repository. 
  • ARAN enables easy discovery of publications through global search engines such as Google and complements IRIS by linking from author profiles to the full text of University publications.

The Library provides:

  • Training on open access publishing and ARAN, managing your research profile and publishing your research 
  • One-to-one consultations 
  • Assistance with uploading your publications to ARAN
