Policies for Submissions

Who Can Submit

The UCLA Department of English only publishes materials about work conducted under the auspices of the UCLA Department of English. The editors reserve the right to determine the suitability of submissions. For additional information, please contact Lynda Tolly (tolly@english.ucla.edu).

Removal

Once posted to a repository, a paper cannot generally be revised or removed. We feel it is important to provide perpetual access to materials published within eScholarship whenever possible and appropriate. However, we will remove publications under special circumstances, including in the case of submission errors, rights violations, or inappropriate content. Please be aware, however, that even after the removal of a text, a citation to the paper will remain in our system, along with a URL.

If you would like your work removed from eScholarship, please contact the administrator: tolly@english.ucla.edu.

Revising Work

eScholarship is currently developing solutions to address users' need to occasionally update their work or post subsequent versions of a manuscript. For assistance with revision or subsequent version posting, contact the administrator tolly@english.ucla.edu.

Author Review

Authors are asked to review PDFs created from their papers within 5 days of being sent the PDF. At this stage, we're unable to make any changes beyond the rare error that occurs in PDF conversion.

Rights and Permissions

Before submitting a paper to the repository, please be sure that all necessary permissions have been cleared. You retain the copyright to your paper and grant us the nonexclusive right to publish this material, meaning that you may also publish it elsewhere.

All submissions to the repository are subject to the standard author agreement. It is necessary that you agree to the terms of publishing in the repository listed in the author agreement. Please contact Lynda Tolly (tolly@english.ucla.edu) to sign a copy of the author agreement.
