MURAL (Maynooth University Research Archive Library) is an institutional repository which makes the research output of staff and postgraduate students at Maynooth University and St Patrick's College freely available online.
Open Access is an international movement to make research publications freely available to the international research community in order to stimulate further research. Any person who can connect to the internet can access Open Access material. They can also download, print and distribute these articles provided the author of the article is properly acknowledged and cited. The potential readership of Open Access articles exceeds that of articles where the full-text is restricted to paying subscribers.
You can learn more about Open Access in our Research Guide for Open Access here.
