In most cases, the UC Publication Management System will automatically find articles that you have already uploaded to eScholarship based on your name, campus, and/or email information and will mark it as claimed and deposited in your publication list.


You can manually re-associate your records by following the steps below:

  1. Locate the item currently displayed at eScholarship.org and copy the permalink (e.g. https://escholarship.org/uc/item/123456

  2. Return to the UC Publication Management System at oapolicy.universityofcalifornia.edu  and navigate to the record (it will likely be under Menu > My Profile > My Work > Publications > Claimed).

  3. Select the “Deposit” icon to go to the deposit page.

  4. Under “Deposited files & OA locations,” select the “Enter an OA (Open Access) location” tab.

  5. Paste the eScholarship permalink in the “OA location” field, indicate the correct file version, and select “Save location.”

  6. Select “Deposit my publication.”
