Research UNE

Have you heard that the Library now has a new institutional repository, Research UNE (affectionately known as RUNE)?

RUNE allows UNE Researchers to securely store research outputs (including published datasets) to comply with grant and University requirements, and for the greater University and public community to gain access where possible to Gold, Green and UNE Green Research Outputs.

This system replaces the legacy repository, ePublications@UNE, and includes exciting new features and functions to showcase the work conducted by UNE Researchers.

RUNE makes it easier than ever to submit your research… All you need to know is:

  1. The title of your research output
  2. The date the research output was created and/or published
  3. The FoR and SEO codes associated with your research

One of the awesome things about RUNE is that the minimum required information is located on the first page of the submission form, is noted with an asterisk and the text is in RED, so you can’t miss it. It helps that the form will not let you submit or progress further without entering information in these fields.

How can you help yourself?

  1. Enter the DOI or another persistent identifier in the initial stages of your submission – this will then pre-populate the RUNE submission form with details about your publication, making your life easier!
  2. Sign up for an ORCiD, which is a persistent identifier for YOU as a researcher. This means that all research conducted by you is then attributed to you
  3. A copy of your published research output is greatly appreciated by the team, along with any pre or post peer versions of your research, all which help the RUNE team to process the records.

Your “In Press” publications

A new and exciting feature of the new and improved repository is that the RUNE team will make available most In Press publications. These records will then appear in researchers lists of outputs and contribute to more accurate reflections of your research.

Give RUNE a try, and contact the RUNE team if you have any questions or feedback. As the system is new, we appreciate any feedback you have and suggestions for improvement, in order to make the system work in the best way possible for UNE’s academic community. Get in touch with us at and have a look at the new repository.
