RIMS now connected to RCSI Repository

It is now possible to submit publications from your RIMS profile to the RCSI Repository to make the full text available to all as Open Access. Many funders now require Open Access for research publications as a condition of funding. RCSI’s own policy also requires all journal articles and conference papers by RCSI staff to be added to the Repository, and encourages deposit of other material. 

For RCSI Researchers looking to submit via RIMS

Within RIMS Symplectic, the Research Website Profile Module https://rims-profile.elements.symplectic.org look for new options to Deposit publications.


Just upload the PDF file of your paper and it will be transferred along with the reference details to the RCSI Repository. Guidance on the versions of papers that can be deposited can be found at libguides.rcsi.ie/researchsupport/openaccesspublishing

All items deposited will be checked and validated by Library staff before going live. 

All items previously submitted to the Repository (previously known as e-publications@RCSI) remain available and do not need to be submitted again. 


There is a new indicator in RIMS showing against all journal articles or conference papers published since 2019. This is to indicate publications which, under the RCSI Open Access Policy, are expected to have full text deposited in the RCSI Repository. 

More detailed instructions on Where to Deposit and How to Deposit can be found on libguides.rcsi.ie/repository/submittingviarims
