Depositing scholarly works should be done by the author at their discretion. Published articles and books may be subject to copyright restrictions based on the contract signed with the publisher. Consider reviewing your contracts before and as you deposit your work. The Sherpa Romeo tool can help you identify your publishers' policies on self-archiving your scholarly articles.
If you have questions about whether your publication contract or other policies allow deposit to DukeSpace, contact email@example.com. The library staff are happy to advise!
The following is a short tutorial on depositing publications. More detailed documentation for the process and any troubleshooting can be found by clicking here.
All scholarly works are deposited to DukeSpace through the Elements publication system. Elements is also used to curate publications lists for display in Scholars@Duke. For more about Elements, click here.
On the Elements homepage, the Publications box shows the publications associated with your profile. Clicking on Claimed will display the full list.
Elements draws from scholarly databases such as Scopus, Web of Science, and PubMed to provide complete metadata for publications. Not all publications are captured in the databases and some publication records may have to be created manually. You can find the data for a specific publication in your Claimed Publications list.
The screenshot below shows a full publication record.
Copyright policies apply to sharing your work openly in DukeSpace. Duke offers advice for depositors about copyright (including details of the Open Access Policy and granting a CC-BY-NC license for all other works) and Elements provides advice from the Sherpa Romeo database of journal publisher polices for sharing articles.
The blue Deposit button on the right side of the record will take you to the appropriate interface to deposit your publication in DukeSapce via Elements.
From the depositing interface, select the file you want to upload from your local file system, choose the version of the manuscript you are depositing, and click "Use this file."
Review the DukeSpace Open Access Deposit License when prompted. It describes the rights are you granting to Duke for any item, especially non-scholarly articles not covered by the Faculty Open Policy. If you have questions about the license, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
DukeSpace supports a small number of supporting files. You can upload them as well before making the final deposit, which is completed by clicking on the blue "Deposit" button (see below).
A record for your publication will be created in DukeSpace (example here) and will be linked from the Elements record and from your Scholars@Duke profile.
