Now that you have opened the Digital Commons page for your event, move on to these next steps.
- Click the 'Submit Research' link on the left-hand menu. You may need to create a new account. If you create a new account, you should receive an immediate email from @dc.bepress.com that asks you to confirm your account registration.
- Once logged in, complete the form as completely and accurately as possible. Follow any specific notes your group leader or course instructor may have given.
[For Scholars Week participants, on the submission form, select only the 'Affiliation' that is hosting the event in which you are participating. If your affiliation is not listed, and you believe it should be, type the name of it into the 'Other Affiliation' entry. If you are presenting a poster in the general poster session, select 'General Posters Session--ONLY'.]
- After you have submitted your abstract to the Digital Commons event page, you will receive an email from an account with @dc.bepress.com informing you that a record of your submission has been created.
- Now simply wait. Once the submission deadline has closed, the event administrators will review the submissions. Watch your email. You will receive a notice of either your acceptance, acceptance on condition of revision, or rejection.
Uploading the full-text of your work?
Note: This set of instructions is only for students in a course or organization requiring full-text upload, or students exceptionally proud of their work.
If you are a student or faculty unsure about uploading full-text documents for one of our campus events, contact email@example.com.
- When you are completing the submission form, upload an electronic copy of your manuscript or work. PDF or Word doc are both fine.
- Within 3-5 business days of your completed submission, you should receive an email containing a Digital Commons Student Work License Form. You will need to digitally sign this by following the link to Adobe Sign provided in the email.
- After you have submitted your work to Digital Commons and signed the Digital Commons Student Work License Form, you will receive an email from an account with @dc.bepress.com informing that your work has been published. This will include a link to the record page, with the final document.
- Students from HON 437, LBA 438, ART 399, ART 498, and ART 499 participating in Scholars Week should submit their abstract-only. Do NOT upload your full text here. These students should wait to upload the full-text of their work until all revisions are in place, and complete upload using the Submitting Student Works tab.
