Full Details

Insight is the University of Cumbria’s institutional repository and was first launched in 2009. It is the robust and sustainable online home for research outputs produced by researchers and staff* at the University of Cumbria. Providing unrestricted access to research output metadata and, wherever possible, full-text manuscripts, publicly showcases the work of the University and maximises the social and academic impact of its research activity.

Researchers can deposit their outputs into Insight themselves; the library no longer deposits on researchers’ behalf. Researchers are encouraged to deposit published outputs at the point of acceptance and update records throughout the publication process. Non-published outputs can be deposited as soon as they are created.

Making outputs openly accessible in Insight fulfils the requirements of many funding bodies including Research Councils UK and the Wellcome Trust, as well as Research England's open access policy for submissions to the post-2014 REF.

Insight conforms to the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting, enabling inter-operability with other data providers.
