Who Can Submit

The Human Rights Center only publishes materials about work conducted under the auspices of the Human Rights Center. For additional information, please contact Camille Crittenden at hrc@berkeley.edu.

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 Camille Crittenden at hrc@berkeley.edu.
  2. Write an abstract for your paper of up to 300 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 Camille Crittenden at hrc@berkeley.edu. 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 Camille Crittenden at hrc@berkeley.edu.

Overview of the Process

After you submit your paper, we will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of the paper. We will then send you a message asking you to approve the PDF version. Please look it over within 5 days and reply to Camille Crittenden at hrc@berkeley.edu as soon as possible. At this stage, we're unable to make any changes beyond the truly necessary. You will be notified by e-mail when the paper is posted.

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 Camille Crittenden at hrc@berkeley.edu. 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.
