About ePrints Soton

What is ePrints Soton?

ePrints Soton is the University of Southampton's Research Repository and contains a growing collection of literature from the University.

ePrints are electronic copies of any research output (journal articles, book chapters, conference papers etc even multimedia). They may include unpublished manuscripts and papers

An ePrint archive is an internet based repository of such digital scholarly publications which can provide immediate and free worldwide access benefiting both author and reader.

The service provides a simple mechanism for enabling researchers to deposit the full text of their work (self-archiving) or to give it to the central service to deposit for them (assisted archiving). It offers advice and guidance on issues such as metadata, formats and copyright. It will aim to ensure the quality of the metadata being added. It provides a complementary service to traditional catalogues and learning resources.
