Countdown to the 10,000th item in CERES – could it be yours?


We are so close now to adding the 10,000th journal article to CERES, the publicly accessible repository of the University’s research outputs. Could it be yours?

Making Cranfield’s research open access (available publicly with no paywall) is essential, not only for the REF and as a fulfilment of funding requirements, but also as a showcase for Cranfield’s expertise to the outside world.

Did you know? CERES really does get you noticed!

The most downloaded item ever in CERES is ‘Managing and measuring for value: the case of call centre performance’ by Marr and Neely. This article has been viewed more than 46,500 times!

The most downloaded item last year was ‘Relationship marketing: bringing together quality customer service and marketing together’ by Christopher, Payne and Ballantyne – this was viewed a total of 16,814 times in 2017 alone…

Don’t forget your data

It is also important to make your research data accessible too – this is done via CORD. All articles should include a link to their underlying data on CORD (don’t forget this – funders are checking!).

For help publishing your data, understanding requirements when working with restricted access or confidential data, or writing your data management plan, please contact our Research Data Manager Georgina Parsons:; 01234 754548 (x4548 on Cranfield campus)


CERES is all about helping to make the University’s research activities freely available online to a worldwide audience, by collecting and curating our outputs and helping to maximise the visibility, accessibility and impact of our research.” (Sally Wilkinson, Head of Research and Education Support, Cranfield University Library Service)

The library team offers a premium service and support to academic staff making our life easy and ensuring that our research outputs and contributions are made available swiftly via Open Access. The team indeed makes a fantastic job of helping us gain a greater visibility for our work and ensuring that we comply with funders’ policies.” (Frederic Coulon, Professor of Environmental Chemistry & Microbiology)
