How you will benefit

All your research in one place

A collection allows your research outputs to be published in one place, making it easier for your audiences to find and use. Tracking and reporting on how your research is being used, viewed, and influencing policy makers is contained within one report.


Increase the visibility of your research

Research published within a collection is immediately made available for anyone to read, download, and share. Having a themed collection aligned to the research outputs of the project would increase the discoverability of your research papers, case studies, data notes etc as all findings can be easily accessed at the same time.

Permanent and trackable research

All research is published with a digital object identifier (DOI) allowing it to be cited, tracked, and indexed across systems such as Google Scholar and Altmetrics. You’ll be able to gain insight on who is using your research and the reach it’s had.


Publish crucial findings rapidly

Once research has passed initial pre-publication checks it can be published on the platform within days. This allows crucial findings to be shared more widely and impact society at a much faster pace.
