    The spread of the cover sheet is a divisive phenomenon. Their appearance is geographically bound and their content situated in the local political and financial context. In this article we discuss the arguments for and against the coversheet in its guise as a fixture on institutional repository preprints, exploring the issue through statistical information gathered from survey material. We lay out the reasoning behind the use of cover sheets in the United Kingdom and discuss their prevalence and the underlying trends.
