Scholarly Communications team

We look after the University's research output and, where appropriate, make it available to the global community.

About us

The Scholarly Communications Team supports the deposit of new research outputs to PURE, electronic theses and dissertations and making research outputs open access.

Copyright for researchers

Consider your options before submitting your work to a publisher. How you manage your copyright now could impact on future uses of your work.


The Scholarly Communications Team has several policies supporting the use, reuse and preservation of content in ERA and publications in PURE.

Requirements to deposit

The University of Edinburgh has introduced a Research Publications Policy requiring academics to deposit their research outputs in a publications repository.
