Welcome to ROS

ROS is Heriot-Watt University's institutional repository. It aims - through the capture, preservation, and dissemination of the University's collective intellectual output - to serve as a meaningful indicator of the institution's research and academic quality. In addition, it provides an invaluable service to individual researchers and academics by disseminating and preserving their work.

Until recently ROS contained only Heriot-Watt theses but it is expanding to include other types of output, such as working papers, articles and conference papers.
