ePubs is the Open Access archive of the Science and Technology Facilities Council. It records the scientific and technical output of STFC staff and facilities users and makes it freely available online.
The ePubs archive contains records and selected files of publications produced by researchers based at STFC facilities. As well as current publications, ePubs includes many records of publications from STFC’s predecessor organisations, CCLRC, SERC, SRC and NIRNS, as part of its aim to preserve a true archival record of the organisations’ output. The oldest publication records date from 1957.
ePubs is managed for STFC by the Chadwick and RAL Libraries.
ePubs has been created using Java JPA with a JSF user interface. It is compliant with the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH), which means that it can be cross-searched together with other OAI-PMH compliant archives.
