DORA (De Montfort Open Research Archive)
DORA (De Montfort Open Research Archive) is De Montfort University's research repository. It forms the primary public and institutional record of DMU research outputs. DORA currently lists over 10,000 items, and the breadth of research at DMU means that these include articles, conference papers, books, book chapters, and other material available in a digital form. The record for each item contains descriptive information as well as, where possible, a version of the final research output. Since January 2009 electronic deposit of PhD theses has also been mandatory and to date over 700 theses are available from DORA.
