Submission Guidelines

Who Can Submit

The Anderson School publishes materials about work conducted under the auspices of the School, its academic areas.

How to Submit a Paper

  1. Make sure your paper is in an acceptable format. We can accept papers in Microsoft Word, Rich Text Format (RTF), or Adobe Acrobat (PDF). We can convert files from some programs into an acceptable format. Please contact your designated area support staff.
  2. Write an abstract for your paper. It can be any length up to 150 words. Please also select keywords. These are words that will help a user locate your paper through a search.
  3. Submit the paper by emailing it to your designated area support staff. Include in an email message the following things: abstract; keywords; and name, affiliation (department and university), and email address for each author.
  4. If you have any questions, contact your designated area support staff.

Overview of the Process

After you submit your paper, your designated site administrator will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of the paper. S/he will then send you a message asking you to approve the PDF version. Please look it over within 5 days and reply to your site administrator as soon as possible. You will be notified by email when the paper is posted. If you do not respond within 5 days your designated area support staff will assume you have approved the PDF version of your paper.

How to Revise Your Paper

If you publish this paper or a revised version elsewhere, for example in a journal, please send the citation of the new version to designated area support staff. We will be able to inform repository users about the new version.

If you would like to post a revised version of your paper on the site, please follow the instructions in "How to Submit"; however, please specify when you submit the paper that it is a revision of a previously submitted paper.
