Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) recognizes the fact that research is a fundamental element of a modern university. Here at EMU, we believe that research is not only a tool for improving the well-being of the society but it also inspires and informs teaching and services within the university. EMU has the mission to encourage and promote state-of-the-art research in the form of publications and other scholarly achievements and aims to increase research activity in terms of quantity, quality and scope.
The University also supports Open Access movement and is committed to disseminating the results of its research and scholarship as widely as possible. For this purpose, EMU Institutional Repository (I-Rep) is founded. The goal of the EMU I-REP is to preserve the university's research publications for future access; and increase the visibility, use and impact of the university's research publications by offering them to use through the university's own institutional archive. The EMU I-REP consists of full text academic research results and educational materials produced in the university, such as journal articles, theses, conference papers, working papers and technical reports produced by the Eastern Mediterranean University faculty members and students.
