A new look for White Rose Research Online


White Rose Research Online (WRRO), the repository for research from Sheffield, Leeds and York universities, has had a makeover.

Sharing and exporting records is easier to do, the platform has been optimised for mobile devices.  Altmetric donuts have also been included, so you can see who is talking about your papers.

Sheffield has just under 11,000 research outputs in the repository and we are growing rapidly, with a 50% increase in deposits in the last 6 months.  Don't forget to upload details of your research outputs whether they are journal articles, books, conference papers or other formats using MyPublications via MUSE (click here to find out more).

Take a look at the new WRRO here  - we would welcome your feedback.
