How to Submit Content to eScholarship

Faculty, staff and researchers at UCSD can deposit their content with eScholarship in 3 ways:

Archive your previously published academic papers

UCSD accepts the deposit of previously published academic papers from all current UCSD faculty and researchers for display in our open access campus collection. To learn more about open access and which of your publications may be eligible for deposit, visit our Previously Published Works information page. Once you're ready to deposit your publication, click here to start your submission.

Add content to your department or research unit's collection

Many UCSD departments and research units showcase the scholarly output of their faculty and researchers on eScholarship. These pages are a great place to display your previously published papers, working papers, monographs & books, conference procedings, media files and datasets. Each department or unit has its own guidelines for acceptable materials, so the first step is to find a space for your content in our listing of UCSD departments and research units. Can't find your department or research unit? Learn how to start a new collection on eScholarship here.
