Goldsmiths Research Online (GRO)

Goldsmiths Research Online (GRO) is a repository of research publications and other research outputs conducted by academics at Goldsmiths.

The repository also holds Goldsmiths' collection of doctoral theses, deposited by staff at the Library.

GRO is part of Goldsmiths 'Online Research Collections' (ORC) which also includes Goldsmiths Journals Online (GOJO), a hosting platform for open access journals and conference proceedings.

The GRO team would like to dedicate this repository and the work that underpins it to the memory of Dr. Timothy Miles-Board, an extraordinarily kind and intelligent man who was instrumental in the creation of this repository and many others, and who did so much behind the scenes to encourage open access to arts research and research more broadly across the United Kingdom (26 June 2017).

Who can deposit

Goldsmiths staff members and PhD students are able to login via their Active Directory account to add details of their research.

If you are not Goldsmiths staff or a current PhD student, you will still be able to see all records and full-text entries which have been made available to the general public.


Some of the materials that make up the repository include:

  • Bibliographic information about Goldsmiths research outputs (metadata).
  • Full-text research articles, sample book chapters, working papers and monographs.
  • Images of art works, documentation of time-based and complex multi-media research outputs.
  • PhD theses.

  • The repository is intended to provide long-term, public, free access to these materials on the internet.


    Please note that not all items are available as full-text. If you find a citation of something which is not available to view, we suggest that you ask at your own university or local library about other means to access the research output.
