CORA is University College Cork's online, open access institutional repository, established by UCC Library to collect, store and disseminate the digital research output of the UCC scholarly community. CORA gives you free open access to University College Cork's scholarly and scientific research publications and theses.
The Library supports Green Open Access publishing via CORA. This Green route involves no costs to researchers and enables you to deposit the final manuscript version of your papers in the CORA repository, where they will be published open access.

In November 2016, Academic Council approved adoption of an Open Access to Publications Policy for all staff employed by UCC.
Authors of peer-reviewed articles and peer-reviewed conference papers resulting from research carried out at University College Cork will deposit a copy in the CORA (Cork Open Research Archive) repository.
In order to comply with the policy, you should 'act on acceptance'. When your journal article or conference paper has been accepted for publication, you should either upload the accepted version through your IRIS profile or e-mail the file to firstname.lastname@example.org. UCC Library will make deposit as easy as possible by checking copyright and adhering to the publisher's terms and conditions.
