What can I deposit?

You can deposit the version of the article before peer review (preprint) or the final version post-review but before actual publication (post-print).

Except in rare cases, you can’t deposit a copy of the published version of the article.

How can I deposit my research in Parade?

If you want to deposit your scholarly research in Parade yourself, please book your place to the Parade workshop on 25 November 2011 at 11.00am.

If you’d like someone else to do it for you, all Faculties have trained depositors.


For more information about Parade and how to deposit your research, please contact Andy Barrow at or ext. 3236.
