Arrow@dit is a database of publications and research outputs by staff and students of DIT. This material is organised and made available in full-text format on the World Wide Web. All material is free to download provided it is attributed to the author and is for non-commercial use.
Arrow is an institutional archive or repository as well as a method of dissemination. Our objective is to preserve a permanent record of the research activity of the Institution.
DIT has an official policy supporting Open Access Research. It can be accessed here. In having such a policy, we contribute to the fast and efficient dissemination of research by making its results freely available.
You can find a short article on the Open Access philosophy at this link.
Arrow@dit is now being harvested by Rian: The National Portal for Research in Ireland.
