Leeds coral research rated most influential

Open Access helped improve its visibility and impact

An open access article, co-written by Leeds academics and available from the White Rose Research Repository, was one of the most influential journal articles of last year.

The research hit no. 21 in the Altmetric top 100 for 2017 with over 100 citations.

The article shows how record temperatures in 2015-2016 triggered a major episode of coral bleaching. It warns that immediate global action to curb future warming is essential to secure a future for coral reefs.

Open access improves research visibility and reach. It is also a condition of inclusion in the Research Excellence Framework. There are a range of open research practices, including open data, which the REF considers important to make research reproducible and visible to the public.

Improve the reach of your work and get included in the REF by signing up to a Researcher@Library workshop or event. Visit the training catalogue to see the events on offer.
