Select a Collection
There are two different collections for items submitted to this repository. While they both start with “Submissions From Faculty and Students” it is important to use the correct collection name. If you are Faculty and submitting a paper that you authored or contributed to, make sure to use Faculty Publications. If you are a faculty member submitting for a student or a student submitting your own work, please use the Student Publications area.
Choose an Import Source
You may ignore this step if your item does not have a DOI. If your item already has a DOI (digital object identifier), listed in either Crossref or PubMed you can import the item from here.
In the menu you can choose the import source and search for the item on the next page.
At the top you can see the steps it will take to finish your submission.
If you choose one of the two options from the previous step, you will be taken to the Live Import page. Here you will be able to find your publication if it had been previously published.
Search using publication ID, DOI, Title, or Author name and press search. When you find your publication in the list that pops up, select it, and then press Next.
The first tab labeled Describe is going to hold basic information about the publication you are submitting. Following through to make sure you fill out every necessary field, Author(s), Title, and Type, will allow you to submit. However, if the publication belongs to a series, an identification number, or you want to specify a language, all of that is done on this page.
The red arrows above indicate required items, and the blue arrows indicate optional items. The second Describe Item page is where you can add more information about the publication. They are optional but we recommend adding keywords and an abstract. If you have sponsors for this publication you would enter them here as well.
If you skipped the first two steps, you will need to upload the file you are working with. Simply press Browse and select your file for upload. If you need the publication to be held out of public view until a specific date you will need to enter that here as well as a reason.
On this page you will check to make sure all information entered about your publication is correct. Simply press “Correct one of these” to make any changes.
License Your Work
Here you can add a Creative Commons license to your work. Simply select one from the dropdown menu, if desired, and press next.
License and Agreement
On this page you will need to read the Repository Deposit Agreement and select the box at the bottom of the page.
Once you hit Complete Submission you will be sent to a page that says it will go through the submission process for the collection. As soon as the item has joined the appropriate collection you will receive an email from one of the administrators.
