How content gets into eScholarship

Modified on Tue, 13 Feb 2024 at 12:46 PM

Content arrives in eScholarship from a variety of places:

  • eScholarship submission system: Individual authors use eScholarship’s manual submission system to contribute items to specific publication series. Administrators of UC departments and research units also curate these series with this system.

  • UC Publication Management System: The UC Publication Management System is an implementation of Symplectic Elements to help UC researchers, LBL staff, and grantees of the UC Research Grants Program Office deposit their articles to eScholarship and manage their publication records in accordance with UC's open access policies.

  • eScholarship journal management system: eScholarship journals use our customized and tightly integrated instances of the Open Journal System (OJS) and Janeway for author submissions, peer review, manuscript management, and issue publishing.

  • Merritt collections of UC campuses Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs): Seven UC campuses make their students’ ETDs publicly available by authorizing eScholarship to automatically harvest their campus’ ETD collections on CDL’s Merritt Preservation service.

  • Publisher deposit workflows: Some content has previously been fed into eScholarship from publisher systems, including Springer Nature and BioMed Central. These connections are not currently active.
