Submission Guidelines

Who Can Submit

The UCLA Library publishes materials on library research and scholarly content generated by librarians and library staff, and scholarly publications of library departments. For additional information, please contact btijerina@library.ucla.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).
    If you use a word-processing program other than Microsoft Word, look for an "export" or "save as" option in your program to save it as an RTF file. If you have questions, please contact btijerina@library.ucla.edu.
  2. Write an abstract for your paper. It can be any length. 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 escholarship@library.ucla.edu. Include in the email message the following: abstract, keywords and names, departments and email addresses for each author.
  4. If you have any questions, contact escholarship@library.ucla.edu.

Overview of the Process

After you submit your paper, we will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of the paper and publish it to the site. 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 btijerina@library.ucla.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.
