BIROn - Birkbeck Institutional Research Online


    BIROn is an online repository designed to host full texts of published research from Birkbeck College academics. Full-text files account for around 30% of the current content. Material is freely available to anyone over the Internet, except where publisher embargoes are in force.

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

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