You may also use Windows Alt Codes to enter special characters and symbols. Each of the following resources has instructions for doing so in addition to lists of alt codes.
See the Instructions for Submitting page of this guide for step-by-step instructions on preparing your submission, filling out the submission form, and revising your submission.
All works must be approved by an administrator before they are published to ScholarlyCommons. Contact your series administrator or the repository manager for more information.
Cover pages are automatically generated by ScholarlyCommons when you upload a PDF. Sometimes, however, a PDF will not allow the system to automatically stamp a cover page due to certain settings associated with the file. In the majority of these situations, the solution is simply to redistill the PDF. You can do this using Adobe Reader by simply using the "Save as" option to save a new copy and then uploading that new copy. If you are still having issues, contact the repository manager.
If you submitted the paper, you can go into "My Account" in ScholarlyCommons and revise the paper. Otherwise, contact the repository manager with a link to the paper and issue/revision, and we will take care of it for you.
You may still be able to deposit, depending on your journal's policy. Some publishers allow you to deposit the final version in an institutional repository; others only allow preprint or postprint versions to be deposited; some prohibit deposit. Check SHERPA/RoMEO to find your journal's policy on depositing. You may also contact us for assistance in requesting permission.
The best way to ensure that you can deposit your works in ScholarlyCommons is to either publish open access or make sure that you retain your rights as the author.
You can access your Author Dashboard from your ScholarlyCommons profile.
You can also view your author statistics for ScholarlyCommons via your SelectedWorks site.
Adding HTML tags to words, numbers, phrases, etc. in your title will tell the program to give that word (etc.) a special format. The "tags" should go around the word, number, phrase, etc. that you would like to format. Some common HTML tags and examples of what they do are as follows:
<strong>bold</strong> = bold
<em>italic</em> = italic
n<sub>2</sub> = n2
n<sup>2</sup> = n2
MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE THE TAG. Think of the tags like bookends. They should go on either side of the word, number, etc. you want formatted; if you start a tag, such as <strong>, make sure you close it with its other corresponding "bookend", </strong>.
Ex. I would like to make <strong>all of this text bold</strong>.
→ will become →
I would like to make all of this text bold.
If you have special characters (e.g., ä, é, β, ñ, etc.), you will need to replace the special character with an HTML code. Some common replacements are as follows:
|Special Character||Replacement HTML Code*|
|´ (acute accent)||&Xacute;|
|ˆ (circumflex accent)||&Xcirc;|
*Put the desired character in place of the "X" in the Replacement HTML code above. For example, é would become é. Ñ would become Ñ.
If the character you need to use is not in this table, go to Special Characters in HTML for more special characters, Greek letters, math symbols, etc. and their corresponding codes. Entering Special Characters Once you find the special character you want to use, you put it IN PLACE of the original character. For example,
