Lincoln Games Research Network

University of Lincoln


Members of the Game Research Group frequently publish papers and book chapters about a wide variety of game-related research. This ranges from AI, game design, games for education, graphics and much more. We also frequently present our work at major conferences around the world. When we do, as well as providing downloads for papers, we aim to provide a summary of the events on our blog and at our reading group events.

Papers are usually provided for download at the University of Lincoln ePrints site. Depending on the publisher, papers are usually completely free for anyone to access. You can search the ePrints site for “games” to find most of our work. Alternatively you can explore the staff pages to find publications by particular members.
