ARAN - Access to Research at NUI Galway

Welcome to ARAN

ARAN is NUI, Galway's open access repository of research publications maintained by the James Hardiman Library. ARAN collects preserves and makes freely available scholarly communication, including peer-reviewed articles, working papers and conference papers created by NUI, Galway researchers. Where material has already been published it is made available subject to the open-access policies of the original publishers. ARAN reached a landmark recently with the deposit of its 1000th publication, .Ireland, peacekeeping and policing the 'new world order'. by Dr. Ray Murphy, Irish Centre for Human Rights. Ray's pamphlet had gone out of print but is now easily accessible on ARAN.


IRIS NUI Galway's New Institutional Research Information System Fully Integrated with ARAN

Aran is now integrated with the University's new Institutional Research Information System - adding your full text to Aran has never been easier.

NUI Galway has recently launched a new institutional research information system (IRIS) One of the main features of the new system is a publications database. Each NUI Galway research has a profile which lists their publications. The system is fully integrated with Aran so that researchers wishing to make the full-text of their publications freely available under open access simply have to attach the full-text file to the publication record in IRIS.

Researchers can also generate their CV from IRIS, output to their personal or departmental web page and out put publication information to several formats e.g. endnote, bibtext. For more information relating to IRIS visit the research office website.
