Ireland's central source for Open Access health research
Lenus, the Irish Health Research repository is the leading source for Irish research in health and social care. The Lenus collections include peer reviewed journal articles, grey literature, dissertations, reports and conference presentations. Lenus contains the publications of the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE) and the collected research output of over 130 health organisations past and present are all freely accessible.
If you are an Irish researcher or have conducted research in an Irish institution or health organisation, you can add your published research to Lenus. Submitted articles must be available in Open Access format or the publisher's policy must permit author self archiving. Advice on Open Access publishing and publishers' policies is available on the 'Open Access Publishing Guide' and 'Publishers' policies' pages available on the left-hand menu.
The Lenus spotlights email newsletter delivers the pick of recent Lenus articles and reports plus news on open access events directly to your inbox.
HSE Open Access Research Awards 2020 - ENTER NOW
The 7th annual HSE Open Access Research Awards are now open for entry.
The awards celebrate practitioners and researchers working across health and social care disciplines in Ireland who are publishing and making their research available in Open Access format.
Ordinarily the awards are judged across a number of categories, but given the massive impact of Covid-19 across Irish society it was felt that this year should be different. Since the beginning of the year Irish health workers and researchers have been working to fight, contain and defeat a new and deadly threat.
So instead of the usual range of categories, the 2020 awards will judge just one: research related to Covid-19. This research can cut across any health discipline, from social care to microbiology to nursing.
