SRI Open Access is primarily a full text repository; however, it now includes abstracts only for special types of research outputs. Surrey staff advance on research not only by writing journal papers, but also by by writing book and book chapters and creating compositions, performances, artefacts, patents, images, videos, computing programs, etc.
SRI Open Access contains bibliographic data with abstracts for books and book chapters as well as for any other research output whose visibility might be much lower in comparison to journal articles or that it can not be made publicly available. However, SRI Open Access contains neither bibliographic data alone for any type of publication nor bibliographic data with abstract for journal articles.
SRI Open Access can hold a variety of files, such as video, audio and zip files, among others.
