Congratulations to Eleanor Bradley for uploading the 3000th item

Eleanor Bradley's article, Carers and Co-Production: Enabling Expertise through Experience? which will be published in Mental Health Review Journal (2016) is now available to read in Worcester Research and Publications (WRaP).

WRaP is the University’s research repository, and is a key element in our commitment to open access publishing.  It also helps us comply with the Higher Education Funding Council's requirements for the next Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise, which is used to assess the quality of our research.

As well as being required by the University’s open access publishing policy, uploading your work in WRaP will benefit your profile and also the wider research community:

  • Higher visibility - there is growing evidence that open access material is more likely to be found, read and cited than work solely published in traditional journals.
  • Greater discoverability - open access repositories are set up to be searched by engines such as Google Scholar.
  • Improved access – researchers (and their libraries!) who cannot afford subscription costs will be able to access your work.

 

For further information please visit our WRaP pages, or contact Roger Fairman and Janet Davidson on wrap@worc.ac.uk.
