The Open Research and Rights Office offers key services to help Brunel researchers record, store and disseminate research and related activities. Our services are designed to support and accelerate a cultural transition to open digital scholarship.

We put our researchers at the heart of everything we do. If you want to get answers and information about any of our systems or services, get in touch with our team.

We also welcome feedback, so if we've helped you resolve a problem or you aren't happy with the service you've received, let us know so we can keep on doing it or put things right.
