Open Research

Edge Hill University promotes and supports Open Research. Please see this statement for more information.

Edge Hill University has a Policy on Open Access (OA) and a Research Data Management Policy.

There are two main places you can access the University’s research.


Pure is the University’s research repository where our researchers upload information about their research outputs (and more) for you to view.

Where possible, the outputs themselves are made available to you online without the need for any subscription or other payment – this is known as ‘open access’.

For enquiries about Pure, please contact the Research Office.


Edge Hill researchers use Figshare to store their research data and, where possible, make it publicly available for re-use.

Figshare is also used for less traditional research outputs (e.g. multimedia).

For enquiries about Figshare, please contact Library & Learning Services.

EHU researchers: you can now find information on open research on the research wiki.
