There should be no issues with uploading submissions on Macs. This is also true with iPads but unfortunately a mobile version of the website is not yet available.
In order to facilitate UCD's commitment to open access and long-term preservation, we prefer PDF format with no password protection as this is a non-proprietary format, for which readers are freely available.
If you have published an item that is linked to a number of UCD Schools/Institutes/Research Centres it can appear in additional collection/s to your main School collection.
On the submission form there is an 'Any other comments' box which you can use for this, after you click 'Send to Repository'. Enter the name of the additional School/Research Centres you would like the item to appear in.
Yes they can. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and request that they be given administrator login privileges for the School/Research Centre. This will allow the administrator to update the profiles and upload papers for each member of staff in the unit. Be advised that UCD Research may need a list of staff members to set this up for Research Centre administrators.
When papers are uploaded on behalf of staff, the administrator will be the contact person for those items if Research Repository staff have queries.
If a UCD co-author uploads first then the item will appear in the Research Management System (RMS) as a "claimable" item, ready to upload to the Repository for all UCD co-authors. Only one author needs upload.
If the co-author is not in UCD then the general advice is for the first author to upload the paper to their repository.
It is possible to organise a "bulk upload" in some cases. The minimum requirement for this is 50 full-text PDF post-refereed author drafts of the papers.
Once you have collected the papers, you will need to list the items in a template spreadsheet:
This consists of simply listing the file name and the DOI for each paper. A free and easy-to-use tool for looking up DOIs en masse is available here:
Simply cut and paste all citations into a box in the DOI tool, and DOIs will be returned. If the paper does not have a DOI, you will need to list citation details in the template.
Comparison of Bulk and Individual Uploading
The process for individual uploads is briefly as follows:
The bulk upload process is:
Once submitted, both options require processing by the Library. Choosing to bulk upload shifts the majority of data entry work from the submitter to the Library, allowing the submitter to concentrate effort on collecting final drafts. This means more full-text papers get sourced with less work on the part of the submitter. It does not mean that the overall process is faster, but some 'economies of scale' are achieved on both sides by processing in bulk.
For both methods the Library undertakes the following processing:
For bulk imports the Library undertakes the following additional processing:
The economies of scale achieved during the bulk import process include:
