Scholarly Publication: PBRF & Repository

An introduction to intellectual property, open access, current awareness, measuring impact for PBRF, and using the Research Repository.

UC Research Repository

The UC Research Repository collects and stores original research from postgraduate students, researchers and academics based at the University of Canterbury.

This is in turn harvested by the NZ and shows up in other aggregated repositories, including OAIster and Google Scholar - making it easier for other researchers to find and cite your research.

Read more about the features of the repository and how to add your research to it.


PBRF (Performance-Based Research Funding) is administered by Research and Innovation. Information is available on the PBRF Intranet site, or you can contact them directly.

Subject librarians can show you resources for finding the citation information that will help you with your PBRF.  (Read more about citation counts and impact factors.)
