Welcome to ARAN (Access to Research at NUI Galway)
ARAN is the digital collection of open access scholarly publications from NUI Galway. 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.
NewsOpen Access to Research Outputs
NUI Galway’s policy on Open Access to Research Outputs, adopted by the Academic Council in October 2015, aims to promote open access to the University’s publications. Authors of peer-reviewed articles and peer-reviewed conference papers resulting from research carried out at NUI Galway must deposit a copy in the ARAN (Access to Research at NUI Galway) repository. ARAN enables easy discovery of publications through global search engines such as Google and complements IRIS by linking from author profiles to the full text of University publications.

Characterisation of rotationally moulded polymer liners for low permeability cryogenic applications in composite overwrapped pressure vessels (2016-09-20)Composite overwrapped pressure vessels (COPVs) have become a critical component in satellite and space applications due to their ability to store highly permeating fuels at high pressures and under cryogenic conditions. ...
(2016-08)Spatial crowdsourcing has emerged as a new paradigm for solving difficult problems in the physical world. It engages a large number of human workers in scenarios such as crisis management and smart cities. The utility of ...
Genotype-dependent responsivity to inflammatory pain: the role of TRPV1 in the periaqueductal grey (2016-09-21)The ability to experience pain is essential for survival, and to prevent potential tissue damage upon exposure to noxious stimuli. The periaqueductal grey - rostral ventromedial medulla – dorsal horn of the spinal cord ...
