UCA Research Online (UCARO) is the online repository for UCA research outputs, providing a digital archive of research by the University's staff and PhD students.

This includes books, journal articles, conference papers, reports, theses, and practice-based research outputs such as exhibitions, artworks, films, performances, and designs.

UCARO is available worldwide to the public, and where possible, the research outputs are openly available to read or view in full. UCARO also satisfies the open access requirements of many UK research funders, such as the REF Open Access Policy.

UCARO is the first repository designed specifically for research in the creative arts, and was launched in 2010 by the Jisc-funded Kultur project. It uses EPrints, which is free and open-source repository software from the University of Southampton.
