What is Goldsmiths Research Online?

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Goldsmiths Research Online (GRO) is the open access research repository of Goldsmiths. Its aim is to bring together research outputs conducted by academics at the College. GRO holds material as diverse as books, journal articles, conference papers, exhibitions, artworks, and compositions.

Currently, there are nearly 7,000 items in GRO. These are being downloaded an average of 25,000 times per month. This means, currently, there is an average of 300,000 downloads from GRO per year.

These downloads come from different countries all over the world. In 2014 so far, the top five countries which downloaded the most from GRO are the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, and France.

As Goldsmiths Library, we encourage academics and PhD students to make their work open access by depositing their research outputs on GRO. You can search, browse, and add material to GRO on http://research.gold.ac.uk/
