Publishing with Spiral 1
Introduction to Spiral
Spiral is Imperial’s open access research repository and holds over 68,000 items. As well as being a place for authors to upload journal articles and monographs; it can also be a home for any research that is not intended for journal publication, or research that authors wish to share more rapidly than journal publishing, or preprint platforms allow.
Receiving a DOI for your report
DOI stands for Digital Object Identifier. It’s a permanent web address which will always link readers to the document. For preserving research and ensuring access to it, a DOI is a much better option than just hosting a PDF on a website that could change or shutdown over time.
