What is CRO?

City Research Online enables our academic staff and researchers to record the bibliographic details of their research and make open access copies available.  It is comprised of City University London's open access Institutional Repository and our research publications database. Our publications database records bibliographic data for City's research outputs, and the open access repository makes our researchers' work freely available online.

The Publications team check all uploaded papers to ensure they are compliant with copyright law and publishers' licences, they will get in touch with the author/s if there are any issues.
