If you use a word-processing program other than Microsoft Word, look for an "export" or "save as" option in your program to save it as an Word or RTF file. If you have questions, please contact repository@stcloudstate.edu.

2. Write an abstract for your paper. It can be any length. Please also select up to ten (10) keywords or brief phrases of two or three words. These are words that will help a user locate your paper through a search.

3. Submit the paper by emailing it to repository@stcloudstate.edu. Include an email message with the following information: abstract; keywords; and name, affiliation (department and university), and email address for each author.

4. If you have any questions, contact repository@stcloudstate.edu.

Overview of the Process

OPTION 1 (no author review):

After you submit your paper, we will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of it and publish it on the site. You will be notified by e-mail when the paper is posted.

This is the preferred option.

OPTION 2 (author review):

After you submit your paper, we will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of the paper. We will then send you a message asking you to approve the PDF version. Please look it over within 5 days and reply to repository@stcloudstate.edu as soon as possible. At this stage, we're unable to make any changes beyond the truly necessary. You will be notified by e-mail when the paper is posted.

How to Revise Your Paper

If you publish this paper or a revised version elsewhere, for example in a journal, please send the citation of the new version to repository@stcloudstate.edu. We will be able to inform repository users about the new version.

If you would like to update or post a revised version of your paper on the site, follow the instructions in How to Submit; however, please specify when you submit the paper that it is a revision of a previously submitted paper.

Removal

A paper may be removed from public view when evidence of plagiarism or academic dishonesty (e.g., falsification of research) is provided by sending a request to the system administrator at repository@stcloudstate.edu. However, a formal review by the University will occur before final removal from The Repository.
