Submit Your Research

To submit your research for inclusion in EngagedScholarship @ Cleveland State University, please email your materials or CV to your personal librarian.

What happens after I submit my materials or CV?

Your personal librarian will review your works to assess whether there are any copyright or permissions concerns with uploading your materials to the repository. For items that have been previously published, this includes reviewing publisher policies regarding deposit of materials to an institutional repository.

Library staff will process your works for ADA compliance.

This process may take several weeks depending on the current volume of submissions.

Your librarian or an EngagedScholarship @ Cleveland State University administrator will let you know your materials have been posted to the repository and collected into your SelectedWorks profile page.

Will you deposit all my materials?

We will endeavor to add all your materials to EngagedScholarship @ Cleveland State University, but may be limited by publisher policies. Some publishers may not allow the published version of an article to be deposited to an institutional repository but will permit deposit of earlier versions. As a result, we may ask if you have retained earlier versions of your publications. These could include the "pre-print" (the article as originally submitted for publication) and/or the "post-print" (the article as revised to incorporate feedback from peer reviewers or an editor but not formatted or branded for publication).
