More about Researchfish.

Gateway to Research (GtR):

Gateway to Research is a web-based portal where information about funded research is published.  The aim is to assist businesses and other interested parties to identify potential partners in research organisations to develop and commercialise knowledge, and thereby increase the impact of publicly funded research. It provides better access for the research community, business and the public to information on research funded by UKRI.

Note: the project summary (abstract) is a key piece of content for display in GtR and it must be suitable for publication and not contain sensitive or confidential information.

Thesis Embargoes & Complying with UKRI policies:

The UKRI Policy on Open Access.

The University of Oxford is committed to the widest dissemination of research theses produced by its graduate students. Students following D.Phil and M.Sc. (by Research) programmes are required to deposit a digital copy of their thesis with the Oxford University Research Archive (ORA), which is the University’s repository for the scholarly research output of its members. If, for good reason, you do not wish your thesis or part of it to be made available for consultation or reproduction, you may apply to the relevant board for dispensation for a limited period from this requirement by completing the dispensation from consultation form (GSO.3C).
