eScholarship generally does not support the withdrawal or removal of publications once posted. We feel it is important to provide perpetual access to materials published within eScholarship whenever possible and appropriate. However, we will remove publications under special circumstances, including in the case of submission errors, rights violations, or inappropriate content. 


If you would like to request that a work that you have deposited using the UC publication management system be removed from eScholarship, please contact us with the following information: 

  1. The URL of the item to be removed 
  2. The reason for the withdrawal request


Please be aware that even after the removal of a text, a citation to the paper will remain in the eScholarship system, along with a URL, and the item will continue to be listed under Publications > Mine in the UC publications management system. (To remove from your publications list, click the red Reject icon beneath the item.)
