Basic policies for the eScholarship Repository are delineated at http://www.escholarship.org/help_submissions.html. All eScholarship Repository content may be browsed and downloaded at no cost and with no access restrictions. Once an article is published in an eScholarship Repository journal or peer-reviewed series, it may not be removed.
Each entry of the UEE is considered an independent peer reviewed article, that will be available in perpetuity. The articles are regular scholarly contributions that can be quoted and will remain available, even if updates or entirely new contributions are published in its stead. Through strict version control older editions of an article will continue to be accessible in the UEE’s archives.
Due to the special nature of this collection of articles, authors will be given guidelines to ensure that the information they provide fits seamlessly into the fabric of the encyclopedia. This is done to prevent gaps or excessive overlap; it is not intended to infringe upon academic independence in any way.
Once an author agrees to contribute one or more articles to the UEE, each contribution will be reviewed by two to five readers in a double blind procedure. The article will be accepted or the author will be asked to make suggested changes. When the article is accepted, the copy editor will check the text for consistency and provides the author with a final version to proof read. Upon approval by the author and the final decision to publish by the editor, the article will be published immediately and available through eScholarship.
Authors rights are described in the Repository Author Agreement and the UCLA Encyclopedia of Egyptology Memorandum of Agreement, which will be sent to the author upon acceptance of the assignment.
