IADT Institutional Repository @THEA
Research@THEA is an open access repository that was launched in 2017 as a service for capturing, storing, preserving and showcasing the research output of the Institutes of Technology in Ireland. As the material is freely available online to anybody with access to the Internet, the potential readership of open access articles far exceeds that of articles where the full text is restricted to subscribers. This increased visibility can result in raising profiles and citations for researchers.
We recommend that all academic staff and researchers deposit their research output in the repository. This will ensure your research gets maximum exposure as it is indexed by Google Scholar, Bing, Google, Microsoft Academic, and all other major search engines. Many funders including Science Foundation Ireland, the Irish Research Council, and the EU via Horizon 2020 require researchers to make their research publications available to all via open access within certain time periods. For further information on how to submit your research to the repository contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
