To comply with the University of California’s open access policy, you need to make your work publicly available. There are numerous ways to do this:
From the carousel, click on the “Deposit publications” button; if you’re further down the screen, click on the “Claimed publications” link under the bar chart.
Click on the publication you’d like to deposit and select the “Deposit” icon to get to the deposit page.
- On the next screen, you have the choice of uploading a PDF (this is most appropriate if you’ve submitted a work that hasn’t been published yet) or entering an OA location (essentially, this is where you can paste in the publication’s DOI).
If you opt to upload a file, click on “Upload file” and follow the prompts.
If you have the DOI, select the “Enter an OA location” tab and follow the prompts.
Finally, select “Deposit my publication.”
If you'd like to add supplemental material,
Navigate to the record (it will likely be under Menu > Manage > Publications > Mine).
Select the “Deposit” icon to go to the deposit page.
Under “Deposited files & OA locations,” select “+Upload another file,” and follow the on-screen prompts to upload an additional file.
Repeat as necessary for additional files.
