Deposit

Deposit in DRO is easy:

  • Create a Staff Profile record describing your output
  • Attach your final accepted, peer-reviewed manuscript to the record
  • ONLY attach the published version if your copyright agreement with the publisher permits OR an Article Processing Charge (APC) has been paid for Gold open access

What happens next? The DRO Team checks the information in the Staff Profile record and then transfers a copy record to DRO. The manuscript is deposited straightaway, but access may be closed-off if the publisher imposes an embargo or if the Team has to contact the publisher for permission to deposit.

Note: If you don't have time to create a Staff Profile record, if and only if you email your final accepted manuscript to the DRO Team, we will create a Profile record for you and deposit your manuscript in DRO.
