Library publishing services


The Library offers several services to help you publish and disseminate your research. We can help you publish reports, journals and conference proceedings. We also support the publishing of digital collections.

Research publications 

The Library can help you to publish one-off reports in an open access format. See this example from the SAPPHIRE Group in Health Sciences
If you want to start a new open access journal or conference proceedings, we have our own version of Open Journal Systems (OJS). This is journal management and publishing platform for academic publications. Articles published through this system are free to any reader, and no APCs are charged to authors. 

Please contact Library Research Services for more information: librarians@le.ac.uk



Digital collections 

Some researchers will be collecting materials as part of a project, and may want to publish them online. The Library supports two platforms to do this:


  •  Omeka.net. This is an easy to use platform for creating websites to display digital collections and build online exhibitions. 


  • Or you could use Special Collections Online to host digitised collections of primary source material. 

  • Please contact Dr Simon Dixon for more information: specialcollections@le.ac.uk

    Finding our training

    I had some feedback last week that searching PROSE is not the easiest way to find out what library training is on offer.

    We sympathise with you! An alternative is to look at the list of training on our Researchers page

    Or you can look at brand new guide to the Postgraduate Researcher Workshop Programme

    If you have any questions about the training please email Selina or myself: librarians@le.ac.uk



    Finding Company Reports Using Library Search

    Company reports are an important source for anyone studying businesses and industries. We provide access to 100,000s reports through Mergent Online and Mergent Archive.  But we still hold print reports in the Library. These are mainly from banks, building societies and the transport sector.

    You can find these reports with the print periodicals in the basement of the David Wilson Library.

    To find them using the Library search follow the steps below.

    1. Go to the Advanced Search. Change Material Type to 'Journal'.

    2.To find a particular company use the name of company AND "annual report" or 
    "annual report and accounts". Here's an example for the Alliance and Leicester Building Society:






    3. To search for a sector, try Bank (or Building Society or Transport) AND "annual report" or 
    "annual report and accounts". Use a date range if appropriate.
