Only current staff members of UAL are able to login to UALRO. But you only need to login to deposit work; items in the collection are Open Access, i.e., free to download without needing to register or login.
If you are a current staff member, and cannot login (use your normal UAL username and password), email us and we’ll see what's wrong.
Some items in UALRO are on ‘Restricted Access’. This means that we cannot make them fully Open Access, usually due to copyright restrictions. Email us to see if we can help you get a copy for your own research or private study.
If you've logged in successfully, but are having problems using the online form, or technical difficulties, email us to let us know where you’re having difficulty; we'll try to sort out the problem, and come see you to make sure it’s working for you.
The final texts of articles accepted after 1 April 2016, and published in peer reviewed journals, need to be uploaded to UALRO within three months of the date of acceptance (i.e., when you and your editor decide that the text is finalised). Please upload the text as finished by you, before any copyediting or typesetting has been done by the journal. Don't wait until any embargo has elapsed; deposit the text as soon as it's been accepted. UALRO will manage any embargo on the text.
Note the URL of the item you'd like to edit (it will look like this: http://ualresearchonline.arts.ac.uk/00000), and email us, telling us that you would like this item to be removed from the online collection and returned to your workspace for you to edit. While it's in your workspace, nobody can view it or download it, so it's best re-deposit it as soon as you can.
Students can't log in to UALRO to deposit their own work. If you have published or exhibited your research, contact your college ADR to ask her or him to make sure it falls within the scope of UALRO's collection, and if so, it can be deposited on your behalf.
Once your thesis has been formally accepted by UAL, it can be added to UALRO so that your work can become more widely known. Further information is available on Theses and Open Access.
