ORA is the University of Oxford’s Institutional Repository. It provides a single point of public access to electronic copies of peer-reviewed journal articles, conference proceedings by Oxford authors, and Oxford research theses. This also provides a means for institutional compliance with funders’ Open Access requirements.

The repository is also home to the sister service ORA-Data which provides a means to archive, preserve and enable the discovery of data produced by University of Oxford Researchers.

There are three routes of deposit to ORA. The main route of deposit for publications and grey literature, such as working papers and reports is via Symplectic Elements, which is also the chosen route for Oxford academics to ‘Act on Acceptance’. If you no longer have an active Oxford Single Sign On (SSO) please request a new depositor account using the option below.

By continuing to make your thesis or data deposit below you are agreeing to the ORA Deposit licence as set out at
