About Surrey Research Insight (SRI)
Surrey Research Insight (SRI) is an open access resource that hosts, preserves and disseminates the full text of scholarly papers produced by members of the University of Surrey. Its main purpose is to help Surrey authors make their research more widely known; their ideas and findings readily accessible; and their papers more frequently read and cited.
Surrey Research Insight (formerly Surrey Scholarship Online) was developed in line with the Open Access Initiative, promoting free access to scholarship for the benefit of authors and scholars. It is one of many open access repositories around the world that operate on agreed standards to ensure wide and timely dissemination of research.
How does it work?
Content available in SRI is free to download by anyone in the world, without password or fee barriers. This content also ranks highly on search engine results. This means that users searching, for example, Google Scholar for a particular keyword, publication title or author, are very likely to come across SRI papers. This, in turn, makes it more likely that SRI papers will be read and cited in other research.
SRI only includes the full text of material submitted by Surrey staff, where publishers’ copyright terms allow and where authors are able to submit acceptable versions. Hence SRI does not hold a comprehensive record of all the research produced at Surrey, but rather offers free access to research material where this is possible.
