Welcome to the UC publication management system! From your homepage in the system, which you can access via https://oapolicy.universityofcalifornia.edu, you can upload, claim/reject, and link funding information to the publications associated with your name. You can also generate CVs and reports, as well as get near-instant stats on the work you’ve published so far. 

Below is a quick start guide to claiming and depositing publications. If you find yourself needing additional help or support, please look through other help articles on this website or reach out to your campus support contact.



1. Once your article has been published and indexed, you’ll receive an email asking you to confirm your recent publication(s). Click the link in the email to start your deposit.

2. Select your UC campus and log in using your existing UC campus credentials. If you a UC campus and Berkeley Lab joint appointee, log in using the UC campus option. 


3. You’ll be presented with a list of your recent publications. Use the checkmark icon to claim those you’ve authored, or the X icon to reject any that aren’t yours.

4. When you claim a publication covered by UC’s Open Access Policies, you’ll be prompted to upload a file or provide a link (if the article is already openly available); the system may also prompt you with an existing PDF if it finds the article in a linked open access repository. You can set an embargo period and re-use licence, if desired.

5.Once your deposit is complete, you’ll be returned to your list of recent publications, in case you need to verify others. You will receive additional email notifications when we discover new publications authored by you.
