Open Access Publications from the University of California


Who can submit

The Samueli School of Engineering only accepts materials about work conducted under the auspices of its academic departments (Biomedical Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering) and its related research centers, institutes, and facilities. The administrators reserve the right to determine the suitability of submissions. For additional information, please contact the administrator


Once posted to the repository, a work cannot generally be 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 work, a citation to the work will remain in our system, along with a URL.

If you would like your work removed from eScholarship, please contact the administrator.
