Anglia Ruskin Research Online (ARRO)

17 May 2018

What is ARRO?

ARRO is the University’s research repository which acts as a central storage location for the research outputs generated by University staff that can be searched by anyone via a dedicated website: It provides – where permissions allow – free and open access to the scholarly outputs of staff from across the University and is a great way to highlight the contributions being made to research by the Anglia Ruskin community.

Benefits for students

As ARRO contains all the research being generated by University staff it is a great resource for accessing current academic research that is relevant to your studies. You can find articles and book chapters written by your lecturers or simply browse by subject area and discover articles that you may not be able to access from elsewhere.

Benefits for staff

By submitting your work to ARRO you are contributing to the work conducted by the University and helping to raise our profile. In order to count towards the next REF all outputs must be deposited to our institutional repository ARRO within three months of being accepted for publication. The Univeristy Library has dedicated staff available to assist with this process so please get in touch if you would like any help.
