SOAS Research Online

SOAS Research Online (SRO) is a free, publicly accessible repository showcasing the research outputs of SOAS University of London. The SOAS Research Online Policy was last updated in September 2017 and includes information on submission and the scope of SOAS Research Online. SOAS academics should also refer to the SOAS Open Access Policy (pdf; 452kb)   to check what is required of them in relation to making their research outputs available in SOAS Research Online.

The repository contains both full-text papers and records of research carried out by SOAS researchers. SOAS Research Online is an integral part of the School’s work in supporting researchers to meet open access requirements of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and external funders. SRO is being continually developed and improved to support SOAS researchers in making their research freely available on open access and maximise visibility, citations and impact.
