If you have a larger submission composed of a large number or variety of items (including articles, reports, etc.), please submit our cIRcle Content Proposal Form.
Before completing this form, please ensure that your content falls within cIRcle’s mandate, specifically the cIRcle Acquisition Policy and Content Guidelines.
Before submission of previously published content, you must confirm with your copyright transfer agreement/publisher policy to determine if the work can be deposited in an institutional repository. If so, you must verify which version is permitted and if there are any embargo periods.
SHERPA/RoMEO can assist with journal permissions verification, though it’s best to confirm with the publisher’s policy directly.
The UBC Library Author’s Guide to Self-Archiving, Publication Versions, and Permissions provides greater detail and context about self-archiving.
If your item(s) have an embargo or are larger than 20 MB, please do not upload your file(s) here but contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange transfer of the content. Please continue with submission of this form, and we will connect the information to your transferred item(s).)
