New project and flexible policy boosts repository content

The start of 2012 has seen more content added to Research@StAndrews: FullText than in any previous month. Much of this activity is down to a new project under way to create an archive for the Sustainable Development Commission.




The Sustainable Development Commission (SDC), which closed on 31 March 2011, was the UK Government's independent adviser on sustainable development. Work on this project was undertaken by St Andrews Sustainability Institute (SASI). Our repository will provide a permanent home to this collection of reports.

Research publications and theses continue to be added to our collections, and our full text content now stands at 1355 items.

Our flexible content policy means that we can accommodate a range of material including staff research outputs deposited via PURE, PhD theses deposited directly by students, community collections such as the SDC reports or CREEM Technical Reports, and most recently our University Library annual report 2010-2011.

We had a record number of visits to Research@StAndrews:FullText in January, up almost 50% compared with January 2011. The most viewed items were:
