CERES Research Repository

Welcome to the Cranfield Collection of E-Research - CERES: a digital repository of research output from Cranfield University. CERES contains a growing subset of research undertaken at Cranfield University including journal pre-prints and peer-reviewed journal reprints, digital Theses and Dissertations, book chapters, working papers and technical reports. All items in CERES are full-text.

Cranfield CERES is being developed in collaboration between academic staff, the library and the IT department.


Masters theses have now been moved to a separate Masters theses archive. Masters are currently only available to members of the University.
