Welcome to UWL Repository

UWL Repository is a digital archive of research, scholarly and enterprise output produced by University of West London staff and research students.


To begin depositing material, in a modern, up-to-date web browser (we are aware of issues with Internet Explorer, so would recommend other browsers such as Firefox, Brave or Chrome,) select Login from the menu and enter your University username and password. For more information about open access, please see the information provided under the Author Guidance tab. For guidance on the deposit process, see the How to Deposit page.


Open access, REF requirements, research data management, digital identity, and impact assessment support will be offered via virtual drop-in sessions. For more information on how to access support, please contact the Repository and Scholarly Communication Team at library@uwl.ac.uk.

Obtaining an ORCID iD will allow you to standardise your author name and bring all your research together. These iDs are now mandatory for many funders and the UWL Publications Policy requires researchers to sign up for an iD. The simplest way to sign-up is to click on the Manage ORCID Permission tab once logged into UWL Repository. From here you can click on the "Create or Connect your ORCID iD" button.


If you already have an iD, please also click on the Manage ORCID Permission tab once logged into UWL Repository and then the "Create or Connect your ORCID iD" button. Once you have granted permissions for reading and writing between ORCID and the UWL Repository, you will have two new buttons in your Manage deposits area, "Import from orcid.org" and "Export to orcid.org". These allow you to push and pull descriptive records between UWL Repository and ORCID.


In preparation for the next Research Excellence Framework, the University has published a Timeline to REF2021.
