The repository team are currently working closely with the University Research Office and Carnegie Faculty to integrate with the research life-cycle to capture bibliographic information and full text outputs at the point of publication.
The process we are promoting to the faculty is very straightforward:
- Prepare your paper and submit to the journal of your choice for peer review
- Make any changes required as a result of the peer review process
- Submit final version to the journal
- Pass on that same final version to Sam Armitage in the University Research Office
- A bibliographic record of your research output will then be added to the repository
- Sam will liaise with the repository team and check journal copyright conditions on your behalf
- If permitted under copyright, the full text that you have supplied will be added to the record and made live in accordance with any publisher restrictions (e.g. embargo)
