Get Started Now - Request a New Unit

If your UC academic department or research unit is not yet represented on eScholarship, you may request a new eScholarship unit. If you have questions about the services we provide, or whether your planned site fits within our content guidelines, you can:

Before we can set up your new unit, the following steps are required: 

  1. Complete a Terms of Service agreement (attached below), signed by the appropriate person, e.g. the chair of the department or director of the ORU. 
    • Please send the entire PDF document with signature (not just the final page) to us using the "New Ticket" button at the top of this page. If there are technical barriers that make this a problem for you, please contact us and we'll work out a solution.
  2. Each person who will be a site administrator for your new site, or who will want to receive statistics reports for the site via email, will need to have an eScholarship account. Visit the eScholarship account sign in page to create a new account or reset a password. Site administrators should be UC employees in permanent posi.
  3. Fill out a new unit setup form to provide the basic information we need to create your site.

Once we have received your signed Terms of Service and completed setup form, we will create a site for the unit and contact the site administrator with links to information on how to build on and customize the new site.
