Research and special collections

Our research and special collections play a vital role in research, teaching, learning, and community engagement. You can explore our unique and significant collections, in both digital and physical forms.


Lincoln staff and students can publish datasets on Data@Lincoln to meet data publication requirements from funders and publishers and increase the visibility of your research. You might publish your data at the same time as the journal paper it underpins – or you might publish “negative results” that won’t lead to a full publication but might still interest other researchers.

Living Heritage

Lincoln University Living Heritage | Tikaka Tuku Iho gathers Lincoln community events, publications and presentations.

Research and innovation are essential to universities wherever they are found. Research enriches the learning environment for students and delivers new knowledge for society and business.

The research resources collected here provide online access to items that have been digitised from early print content through to the latest digital data.


Research@Lincoln is an open access institutional repository collecting the research produced by Lincoln University staff and students, including journal articles, conference presentations, reports, and theses and dissertations.

The advantages of web access to theses include:

  • the research has a global audience, and students gain world-wide exposure and recognition
  • more immediate access to research findings is available
  • access is independent of time, place and computer system/platform
  • theses are protected from physical damage or loss.

Students wishing to submit a thesis or dissertation should see the Depositing theses and dissertations guide.
