Digital Commons: Upload your content

Editing Article Posted on Profile

If the Library staff has created your profile, we have uploaded your publications first in the UW Tacoma Digital Commons and then imported them into your SelectedWorks profile. If you would like to change or edit anything in the record, please send an email to taclibdc@uw.edu.

What we post on your profile is determined by the journal polices. We will search the journal's rights statements in SHERPA/RoMEO and note In the record of any work published in a journal which version of the article we can post. They typically fall into these categories:

Version Description What's posted
Open Access By policy, the journal makes it work openly available on its site.  Link to openly available full-text article.
Publisher PDF This is the final, formatted version of an article as it appears in the journal when published. Final published version of article.
Post-print The final draft of the article submitted after it has gone through the peer-review process; usually this is a manuscript-formatted Word document.  If sent by author: Final draft of reviewed article, with out journal formatting.*

If not sent: Link to catalog record in the UW Libraries.
Pre-print The draft of the article submitted before the peer review process. Usually a manuscript-formatted Word document

If sent by author: Draft of article before review, without journal formatting.*

If note sent: Link to catalog record in the UW Libraries.

No SHERPA/ROMEO policy available We were unable to find a policy for the journal where this article was posted.  To determine which version can be posted, review the author's agreement you signed with the journal.

*If the Library created a report for you, then you should have received a report identify which versions of articles can be posted. If you have the correct version of an article that has been posted, please send it to taclibdc@uw.edu if you would like to have it added to your profile.

Editing Book Posted on Profile

If the Library staff has created your profile, we have uploaded your publications first in a departmental book gallery on UW Tacoma Digital Commons and then imported them into your SelectedWorks profile. If you would like to change or edit anything in the record, please send an email to taclibdc@uw.edu.

Since entire books are rarely made available in an open access environment, we create a record which includes:

  • A cover image and bibliographic data about the book.
  • Links to purchase the book and the catalog record in UW Libraries.
  • A link to the electronic version, if available.

If you have a book that you would like added to your site, you may post it yourself or submit information to taclibdc@uw.edu.
