How you deposit articles in accordance with the UC Open Access Policy depends on your campus and your specific employment status at UC.
Initially, all authors used a manual deposit process to add their articles to eScholarship, UC’s open access repository and publishing platform. A new publication management system is being implemented to make participation easier for authors. Because the Academic Senate policies were adopted first, Senate faculty will be the first users added to the system. Once the system is implemented at all ten campuses, those non-Senate UC authors covered by the Presidential Open Access Policy will be added.

Senate faculty will be contacted via email to verify their articles within UC’s new publication management system and to upload a copy or provide an open access link to their publications. Faculty can also log in to the system at any time by visiting oapolicy.universityofcalifornia.edu.
Deposit for these authors will continue to be managed through eScholarship, UC’s open access repository and publishing platform, until full UC-wide implementation of the publication management system is complete. You can learn more about the system’s progress by viewing the Implementation Plan. Select your campus above to begin the deposit process – or to notify us that your publication is already available in another open access repository. (Note: you will be asked to log in. If you don’t yet have an eScholarship account, you will have the opportunity to create one.)
