This is the official institutional research repository for the University of St Andrews. The repository contains electronic theses and research publications including articles, conference proceedings, working papers and some research monographs. It also contains material and publications affiliated to the University and arising from specific projects. Full text content is provided for all research publications in the repository, and wherever possible (following embargoes) for electronic theses.

The University requires submission of an electronic version of theses. For help with electronic thesis deposit see Library webpages on how to submit your electronic copy or contact

The full text of research papers can be submitted to the repository via Pure, the University's research information system. For help see our guide: How to deposit in Pure or contact the Open Access team at
