Guidelines for Contributing Materials

Content Policy

The UCSD Libraries Section of UC's eScholarship (UCSD Libraries eScholarship) includes professional material related to library, archival and information science prepared by UCSD Libraries staff upon submission of a signed UCSD Libraries eScholarship Author Agreement and review by the UCSD Libraries eScholarship Team. Informal publications (not peer reviewed), such as presentations, working papers, or posters are accepted on the condition that they are openly accessible on or after the date that the UCSD Libraries eScholarship Author Agreement is signed.

Formal publications (publications that have passed some kind of peer review), such as journal articles or books, are accepted on the condition that the author submitting the publication can show proof of agreement with the original publisher that the material may be reprinted.

Instructional materials are not accepted. They may be submitted to the California Digital Library Instructional Materials.

Digital formats specified by CDL as acceptable for eScholarship (currently, PDF only) are accepted.

Please note: It may be necessary to amend your publisher agreement in order to deposit a copy of your work in eScholarship. In these cases, the following statement may be required (be sure to also verify with the publisher):

Publisher acknowledges that Author retains the right to provide a copy of the ['final peer-reviewed manuscript' or other language as applicable] in UC eScholarship upon acceptance for publication.
