About the Repository

The LondonMet Repository serves London Metropolitan University as the open access repository for the institution’s research output created by staff and research students.

Digital versions of research papers are made available to anyone who wishes to access them and can be read and cited by all.

The LondonMet Repository uses the EPrints platform and allows staff to follow a self-archiving mechanism.
