The Lincoln Repository

The Lincoln Repository holds a record of the work of the institution.  It also populates staff profiles, and helps support the Institution’s Open Access policy, and the HEFCE Policy on Open Access which enables the work to be assessed in REF exercises.

Please go to the repository home page to log in and make records of your work.  For assistance please contact or refer to the help guide.


All articles deposited should comply with the HEFCE Policy on Open Access, and, where applicable, the research funders’ policies

Our advice is to deposit an author’s accepted manuscript (after peer-review but before publisher’s final formatting) as soon as possible after acceptance; remember to fill in the acceptance date.  We’ll double-check the policy and get back to you if we need a different document.
