The Library is hosting drop-in sessions or “upload-a-thons” to help navigate the UC Publications Management system and encourage Academic Senate faculty to participate in the UC Open Access Policy.

Passed by the Academic Senate in July 2013, the policy ensures that scholarly articles authored by UC faculty are made available free of cost to the general public and researchers worldwide. Such wide dissemination is not only a public good but also results in greater impact and recognition for researchers.

For help uploading articles into the eScholarship UC’s open acess publishing platform stop by an upload-a-thon.

When: Tuesdays & Wednesdays *

Times: 4:00 to 5:00pm

Where: Library Data Lab (189 Doe Library)

Additional upload-a-thon dates/times, hosted at subject specialty libraries, are listed on the UC Open Access Policy help page.

What to bring:

  • Your laptop
  • The “final author version” of your article(s). Locate articles in advance and make sure files are on your laptop or a flash drive.

See the online guide to UC Open Access Policy.

* These drop-in sessions will run from November 17- December 16, 2015 and January 19-February 24, 2016
