The University of Bolton encourages its staff to engage in research and it has a number of very strong research groups, some recently developed and some of long-standing. We aim to foster research which will support teaching at every level in line with our Teaching Intensive Research Informed agenda.
Part of the process of developing and supporting research is to ensure that the research is disseminated to as wide an audience as possible, and to that end, the University has developed its own open access repository - the University of Bolton Institutional Repository (UBIR). The aim of UBIR is to capture, store and preserve the intellectual output of the University of Bolton. Of course, this has an increased significance since 1 April 2016 when HEFCE require all research outputs that are likely to be considered in the next Research Excellence Framework to be made available on an open access basis and UBIR provides this compliance.
I hope that you will make full use of the resource which the UBIR represents.Professor Patrick McGhee
