For many years Eureka was the open access repository for research at the Saïd Business School. It was originally established by Sainsbury Library staff to provide an easy deposit service for academics and research staff at the School. However, the Oxford research support landscape has changed radically in recent years with many improvements at an institutional level. Most significantly, this includes the provision of Symplectic Elements, a research information management system, and ORA, the Oxford University Research Archive. Both of these systems are available to the entire University and are now at the core of the research workflow in Oxford, and will be used for the University’s submission to REF. Therefore, it is no longer necessary for the Sainsbury Library to provide a dedicated research repository for the School.
Eureka was sunsetted at the end of August 2020. The live repository is no longer available online. A snapshot version of Eureka is now available to view through the Bodleian’s Web Archive, requests for old Eureka URLs are now directed to an archived version where possible. Publications for current academic staff that have been stored in Eureka have now been migrated over to Symplectic Elements. All outputs nominated for REF 2021 will need to have a record in Symplectic Elements. The logistics of REF nomination is managed by the School’s Research Office, if you have any questions about this please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
