Making your research publications openly available enables researchers, students, policy makers, and the public worldwide to read and benefit from immediate, reliable, and practical information to help address global challenges and inspire future research. As a UC employee, UC’s open access policies empower you to make your scholarly articles freely available to anyone, anywhere, by depositing them in eScholarship, UC’s open access repository.
Deposit using the UC Publication Management System
The UC Publication Management System simplifies this deposit process. The system searches multiple publication databases for publications which may be yours; every two weeks, the system sends you an email if it finds new works for you to verify and deposit. You can also access the system at any time by going to oapolicy.universityofcalifornia.edu.

Don’t have access yet? Deposit directly to eScholarship
All UC employees should have login access to the UC Publication Management System. If you are unable to log into the system, first reach out to your campus open access policy support team to learn why. In the meantime, you can also upload your publication directly to eScholarship, and they will be linked in your UC Publication Management System account when activated. Select your campus below to begin the deposit process. (Note: unlike the UC Publication Management System, eScholarship requires an eScholarship account. If you don’t yet have one, you will have the opportunity to create a new account)
