CentAUR - Depositing on behalf of an author
The following is a list of the information that you will need about a publication in order to be able to add it to CentAUR on behalf of an author.
Please note that if the publication has already been added, e.g. by a co-author, you do not need to add a duplicate.
For instructions about using CentAUR itself, please refer to the relevant guides in Help
Bibliographic details (author, title etc.)
The following is a list of the most important fields to complete for standard text items, such as books, chapters, journal articles, conference items and reports. You can complete as many of the other fields as you have details for. Fields marked* are mandatory.
Don’t panic! Not all fields are relevant to all types of publications and many can be completed by selecting from drop down or pick lists.
Repository staff will check all the information that you enter and complete any key fields left blank, by referring to online databases (e.g. Web of Science).
The author should supply you with the associated full text to upload, but only if their publisher will allow them to deposit it in an institutional repository. It should be the accepted for publication, author final draft, or occasionally the publisher’s PDF if allowed by the copyright agreement. No early drafts are permitted.
It is the responsibility of the author to check copyright and for repository staff to check again. You do not need to check the copyright yourself - just upload the document that you are given and repository staff will delete it if not permitted.
If a full text is attached, there are a few mandatory fields that will need to be completed, using drop-down options.
