BIROn - Birkbeck Institutional Research Online

    BIROn is an online archival database hosting the full text of published research done at Birkbeck College. Material stored in the archive is freely available to anyone over the Internet.

    Services like BIROn are being developed by academic institutions worldwide, as mechanisms for making research more widely available. They are intended to open up the scholarly research literature, in the spirit of the Open Access Movement.

    BIROn is not a publishing mechanism, nor is it a substitute for peer-reviewed journals. It has been developed to host material that has already been, or is about to be, published elsewhere.
