Open Research at Brookes

Amongst the resources on Research Integrity that Oxford Brookes supplies as guidance for staff are statements on Open Access, Open Data, and Open Methods. This includes Brookes’ statement on Transparency in research and its policy on open access. We also have a policy on data management, in line with the concordat on open research data.

Brookes is part of Universities UK and the University Alliance, and either through these affiliations or directly works in with a number of relevant concordats, including the

  • Concordat for Engaging the Public with Research

  • Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers

  • UK Concordat for the Support of Research Integrity

It is also a signatory to other national and international declarations including the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), the Leiden Manifesto for Research Metrics.

Current tools and systems include RADAR, the Research And Digital Assets Repository, for most papers and research data; and the Arkivum service for digital archiving of data sets of particular interest.
