How to deposit your
The University’s Publications
Policy requires staff to deposit copies of peer-reviewed journal articles
and conference proceedings into Enlighten. This policy came into effect on 22nd September 2008. It applies
to material published from this date onwards. You are not required to deposit
the full text of earlier publications unless you wish to. If you have
previously deposited publications into Enlighten/the Glasgow ePrints Service you
do not need to deposit these again, as these are already held within the
Staff may also deposit other published material such as book chapters and
monographs if permission can be obtained from publishers. Repository staff can
contact publishers on your behalf.
How to deposit
There are two options:
1. Self-deposit into Enlighten. This can be carried out by individual authors or by a member of administrative staff depositing on behalf of several authors. Self-deposit requires you to:
- Register for Enlighten by clicking on 'Create account' on the left hand menu under 'MyEnlighten'.
- Log with your username and password by clicking on 'Login' on the left hand menu under 'MyEnlighten'.
- Provide basic bibliographic details about your publication and upload the full text.
For further information on this see How to Self Deposit.
2. Send an electronic copy of the full text of your publication to
email@example.com along with brief bibliographic details. Repository staff will carry out deposit on your behalf.
You should deposit or send your own final version of your
publications, and not the publisher PDF version, as most publishers do not
permit their version to be made available in repositories. This means the
closest version you have to the publisher version. It can include changes made
following refereeing and editing, but cannot include publisher logos, copyright
statements etc.. The format of files should be either Word or PDF.
Repository staff will check all publications to ensure that publishers permit
deposit in repositories, and that copyright agreements are adhered to. If the
publisher of your article does not permit deposit in repositories the full text
will not be made publicly available.
