Tips & Things to Consider

  • If you want to deposit a document along with your item so readers have access to the full text, you need to be sure you own the copyright.  If you are adding work that has been previously published, you will need to check your publisher agreement to see if the publisher now owns the copyright.  You may still be able to add a preprint version, but again, if you signed over your copyright to the publisher, you will need to follow their guidelines for which version can be submitted.

  • Before adding an item, be sure to double check that it is not already in your profile.
