Doras: What can be Deposited?

What can be uploaded

Doras accepts Journal Articles, Books, Chapters, Theses, Conference Items, Monographs, and Working Papers (From an established DCU series only). For more information on these types, please consult the panel on the right.

Where applicable, full copyright checking is performed and only items that comply with publisher copyright policies will be permitted in the public archive. To enhance your (journal article) item’s chances of meeting publisher policies please upload your Author Accepted Manuscript where this is available. This is your final (post peer review), working copy of your paper, complete with peer review changes, but not typically containing all of the typesetting, formatting, logos etc present on the publisher’s final copy (available from the publisher website/platform). By way of example please see the example below…

 Note: if you are planning to upload a number of articles and you don't have the author accepted manuscript, before uploading more than one or two, we recommend you check publisher permissions via the resource Sherpa Romeo which provides information on publisher copyright and open access policies. You can search by publisher or by journal title. Alternatively, email us at and we can advise.
