RCSI Repository

RCSI Repository is an open access institutional repository of research and scholarly output of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Formerly known as e-publications@RCSI, it has been relaunched with a new look in December 2019.


Access RCSI Repository


In early 2020 as phase two of this change, the new RCSI Repository will be linked up to RIMS, the Research Information Management System. Submissions to the repository will then be made from your RIMS profile. In the meantime, deposit can be made by emailing your document and details to


 The repository aims to:

  • Provide an open-access repository for research staff and students to deposit their academic work so it is freely available on the internet.
  • aid in disseminating RCSI and related research work to a wider audience, thus increasing worldwide exposure to this work.
  • provide a central archive and record of research work both for the College and for an individual researcher.
  • Publishing open access can help RCSI researchers fulfill their funding authority's open access mandate. Most Irish funding authorities, including Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), the Health Research Board (HRB) and Irish Research Council  (IRC)  now have an open access mandate - this means they require submission of published work funded (in whole or part) by them to an open access repository. Other funding authorities with open access policies include Wellcome and the European Research Council (ERC).

The service is maintained and managed by RCSI Library. If you would like to submit your work to RCSI Repository or if you have any comments or suggestions, please contact the repository administrators
