ARAN: Access to Research at NUI Galway

ARAN: Access to Research At NUI Galway is NUI Galway’s institutional repository.

ARAN collects preserves and makes freely available scholarly communication, including peer-reviewed articles, working papers, conference papers and PhD theses created by NUI Galway researchers. Where material has already been published it is made available subject to the open-access policies of the original publishers.  ARAN is also crawled by Google Scholar, Google, OAIsterand Researchgate  and can expose your research to the widest possible audience.

Increasingly public funding bodies are demanding that scholarly communication related to funded research should be made available under open access and ARAN provides NUI Galway authors with an easy and convenient way to comply with these funder mandates.

Aran is now integrated with the University's new Institutional Research Information System - adding your full text to Aran has never been easier.

New: IRIS Integration

NUI Galway has recently launched a new Institutional Research Information System (IRIS). One of the main features of the new system is a publications database. Each NUI Galway researcher has a profile which lists their publications. The system is fully integrated with Aran so that researchers wishing to make the full-text of their publications freely available under open access simply have to attach the full-text file to the publication record in IRIS.

The public view of our Research Information System IRIS is available here.  

Researchers can also generate their CV from IRIS, output to their personal or departmental web page and output publication information to several formats e.g. endnote, bibtext. For more information relating to IRIS visit the research office website.
