20,000 Items Under the Repository!


Dr Papathomas is pictured receiving his prize from Professor Steve Rothberg, PVC Research and the University Librarian, Emma Walton.

The 20,000th item has been added to Loughborough’s Institutional Repository by Dr Anthony Papathomas, Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences.

Dr Papthomas has thirteen papers and his PhD thesis in the Institutional Repository. The winning submission, co-authored with Brett M. Smith and David Lavallee, is available on the Repository here.

The Institutional Repository, based here in the Library, ensures that Loughborough University’s research output is visible to the wider research community, increasing its impact and citation rates. It also assists authors in complying with funder Open Access requirements for their papers, including those of the RCUK and HEFCE. It contains a range of items including full-text journal articles, conference papers, book chapters, official reports, PhD theses and audio-visual material.
