What is HIRA?
Hope's Institutional Research Archive (HIRA) holds details of the research outputs produced by Liverpool Hope's academic staff. It is the mechanism for showcasing our research outputs and allows the University to meet the open access requirements for the next REF. It also provides publication data used by the Academic Profile system.
