Notes about submitting work

  • Don't know your rights? Most publishers today have self-archiving policies and spell out author rights. We can help you figure this out. When policies aren't known, we'll ask the publisher for permission.
  • What version can I deposit? Usually, the version you're permitted to archive is the accepted manuscript, also called a postprint. This is the final version you submitted to the publisher after peer review and revisions but before copy editing and layout. It's often a Word or LaTeX document.
  • You didn't save your postprint? Are you sure? Look again. Check in your email "sent" folder. If you only have a hard copy … that’s OK. We can scan it.
  • Always save your postprints. Did we mention that you should always save your postprints?
  • Send it in: You don't need to wait until it's published; you can send it to us as soon as it's accepted. We'll enter it into eCommons with any required embargoes and publisher statements.
  • Granting permission: We need permission from you to put your research on eCommons. That's why it's important that you request that we enter it.
