Submitting to TeesRep - Teesside University staff


PURE is the new platform for TeesRep ,the University repository. During the last few months we have been migrating all the data  from the repository to the new PURE platform and we hope to have completed this by the end of 2018. The new platform is quite simple  to use and we will be training staff and researchers to submit their own outputs. 


What can be submitted?

Since 2010 Teesside University authors have been mandated to deposit their peer reviewed outputs however any research output can be recorded in TeesRep including:

Journal articles, book chapters, conference proceedings, editorials and letters, presentations, conference slides and abstracts, exhibitions, interviews, art and design work, patents, poems and prose fiction, audiovisual works and research reports.


When should I submit my work?

For peer reviewed outputs please let us know as soon as your work is accepted for publication.

Open Access and the REF


What information do I need to submit?

For new research accepted since the end of the last REF assessment period (01 Jan 2014) staff should forward acceptance correspondence from their publisher along with their accepted manuscript.

To comply with open access requirements for the REF you must send us a copy of the authors accepted manuscript (AAM) and let us know the date of acceptance dd/mm/yyyy


Which version of the work do I submit?

Typically the version of the work needed for TeesRep submission is the Authors Accepted Manuscript: the author-generated version of the manuscript following peer review and including any revisions of an academic nature.

The Accepted Manuscript is usually the author’s final working version and should include changes from peer review but not the publisher’s logo or the design of the published version. This version may also be referred to as a ‘post-print’, ‘version 2’ or the camera ready version depending on your publisher. Publishers proofs are not acceptable.
