Why should you contribute?

When it comes to research, we are more often than not

“Data rich, but Information poor”

Accumulating knowledge and research without accompanying it with informed action and sharing it broadly is ‘pointless’ – instead, all that hard work and data becomes one for the bookshelves.

The Island Research Repository aims to reduce this in Jersey by providing reviewed, open-access, high-quality research to all; for personal enjoyment or to aid decision-making on a larger scale. The repository will also act as a platform for new and emerging scholars, practitioners and passionate islanders with an interest in sharing their work.

By research being free and on a website that is simple to navigate, we hope it will reduce the conception that research is ‘purely academic’ and instead make the idea of research more accessible and welcoming to all islanders in Jersey.

"Local Knowledge, Shared"

Islands are the perfect ‘laboratories’ for research – be it environmental, political or social. Their insular nature removes the influence of the many external factors that can influence results. The repository aims to be a starting point and transferable knowledge bank for all other small nations and island states, from our surrounding channel islands to UK overseas territories and beyond.
