Goldsmiths Research Online (GRO)

Goldsmiths Research Online (GRO) is a repository of research publications and other research outputs conducted by academics, research fellows and PhD researchers at Goldsmiths. The repository also holds Goldsmiths' collection of doctoral theses, updated by staff at the Library.

Who can deposit

Goldsmiths staff members and PhD students are able to login to add details of their research. If you are not Goldsmiths staff or a current PhD student, you will still be able to see all records and full-text entries which have been made available to the general public.

See guidelines for depositing on GRO.


Some of the materials that make up the repository include:

  • Bibliographic information about Goldsmiths research outputs (metadata).
  • Full text research articles, sample book chapters, working papers and monographs.
  • Images of visual art works, documentation of time-based and complex multi-media research outputs.
  • PhD theses.

The repository is intended to provide long-term, public, free access to these materials on the web.


Please note that not all items are available as full-text. If you find a citation of something which is not available to view, we suggest that you ask at your own university or local library about other means to access the article or book.

Open Access

Goldsmiths Research Online is managed by the Goldsmiths Library, in collaboration with the Research Office, ULCC and IT Services. Built on open access principles using open source technical standards, it functions alongside traditional publishing, copyright and IP arrangements.
