STORRE reaches 1,000!

The STORRE Managers have great pleasure announcing that on Friday 15th May 2009 the 1,000th item was committed to STORRE: Stirling Online Research Repository (  


The 1,000th item to make it into the repository was:  

Title:   Research Frontiers in Wholesale Distribution (Editorial)
Authors:  Quinn, Jim; Sparks, Leigh


So well done to Professor Leigh Sparks, and to all the other authors who have submitted items to STORRE to help us reach this grand total. Keep it up!  


Of course, putting your research publications in STORRE is not all about the numbers. Rather STORRE serves to promote the University’s research output, and increase it’s impact and citation, by making it freely available to the wider research community.  
The whole STORREy
STORRE first opened its doors for business in June 2005. In September 2006 it became mandatory for Research Students to deposit an electronic copy of their successfully defended research thesis in STORRE, and so by April 2008, when the policy requiring all Journal Articles accepted for publication be deposited in STORRE was announced, the repository had a grand total of 206 items; 143 eTheses and 63 Journal Articles.   Since the introduction of the Journal Article mandate last year, STORRE has been further expanded to accept other refereed works such as Book Chapters, Conference Papers, Working Papers, and Research Reports, and another 796 items have been committed to the repository.  


At the time of writing, STORRE contains:  

Journal Articles: 588
eTheses:  253
Book Chapters:  55
Conference Papers: 66
Working Papers:  40
Research Reports: 1

There is more information on how to submit items to STORRE available at, but if you have any questions relating to STORRE, or would like someone to speak to your department about STORRE and the submission process, please don’t hesitate to contact us.   Here’s to the next 1,000!
