Author FAQ for Digital Scholarship@UNLV

How do I revise or remove a submission?

If a submission of your scholarship needs to be revised or removed, please email

How can I submit a multi-part file, such as multiple chapters for a book?

Send your files to or via our submission form and the repository staff will create a single file for you.

Can I post related files (sound clips, data sets, etc.) alongside the published article?

Yes. Simply attach these files via our submission form with a note in the message box about which files they supplement, or email them to

Can I post a reprint from a journal?

It depends on what the journal allows, which is usually specified in their agreement with the author. Digital Scholarship@UNLV staff are happy to provide copyright research to find out which articles we are allowed to post.

A working paper in our repository site has been published in a slightly revised form in a journal. What should I do?

Many journals do not have any restrictions on working papers that preceded an article, especially if substantial revisions were made. You should check your author agreement with the journal to confirm that there is no problem with leaving the working paper on the site. The repository would constitute noncommercial use. Assuming the working paper does remain posted in the repository, it is a good idea to include the citation to the published article on the cover page of the repository working paper.
