Your publication(s) may already be publicly available in an open access format on another site, such as if you published in an open access journal, paid a fee to make your article open access, the article is publicly available because of a funder mandate (often in PubMed Central / PMC), or the article was already deposited to eScholarship.


If the item is available on PubMed Central (PMC) or arXiv:

  • Once you claim the item, you can navigate to the deposit page.

  • The full text PDF for the item should already be present if it was made available by PMC or ArXiv.

  • Simply complete the deposit to create a record in eScholarship.


If the item is available elsewhere (because you paid a fee or published in an OA journal), you can select the “Enter an OA location” tab on the deposit page and provide the URL for the version of record.
