This has been delivered in partnership with OpenAire. Academic staff from each university upload their material to their university’s institutional repository and this material is then harvested into the EUt+ repository. The EUt+ institutional repository provides a portal where all of the open access material from the EUt+ can be searched and downloaded.

The EUt+ Open Access Academic Press provides a publishing platform for the staff and students of the eight-member universities. Material will be published in the languages of the participating universities but all abstracts will be in English. The objective is to provide quality works of scholarship regardless of subject area. The Press is free to read and free to publish in and all material is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non-commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) license. This provides gold open access which is the free, immediate and permanent online access to a publication’s version of record. All submissions to the Press are by completion of the proposal form. The completed proposal from will then be evaluated by a review body in each university who will decide if the item is suitable for publication or not. The final decision to publish will by made by the Advisory Board of the Academic Press. Any conference proceedings or seminar outputs produced under the auspices of the EUt+ will be automatically published as long as the editors comply with the author guidelines. Individual author (s) must also comply with the author guidelines. Failure to do so will lead to immediate rejection.
