UCA | University for the Creative Arts University for the Creative Arts


UCA Research Online is the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) research repository, providing a digital archive of research outputs produced by the University's staff.

It contains information about a wide range of research outputs from books, journal articles, and conference papers to exhibitions, artworks, and design.

UCA Research Online satisfies the Open Access requirements of many UK funding bodies (such as Research England) to make the results of publically-funded research available to the public.

UCA Research Online is also used for the University's submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF), which is the national system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions.

Built by the JISC-funded Kultur project, and launched in 2010, UCA Research Online is the first repository designed specifically
for research in the creative arts. This site is powered by EPrints, free and open-source software developed by the University of Southampton.
