Online Submision Instructions

SCOLR Online Submission Instructions

At present, SCOLR can accept work through a mediated submission process only. Before you begin: Please read the submission guidelines to confirm that your work is eligible for submission to SCOLR. You will need to complete a separate submission form for each work. Supplementary materials (e.g. test instruments) may be submitted with the main work. Be sure to have the following:

  1. The submission’s title
  2. An abstract
  3. a list of keywords
  4. the electronic format of your file or hyperlink to your file (PDF preferred for text files)
  5. permission from the copyright holder, if it is not you

Submission steps:

  1. Go to the Submission Form.
  2. Complete the form to the best of your ability (contact the library if clarification is required).
  3. Read and accept the SCOLR Submission Agreement which:
    1. warrants that you are the copyright holder, or have the permission of the copyright holder to submit the work to SCOLR.
    2. attests that the work does not contain any libelous or unlawful matter or violate anyone’s right to privacy
    3. grants the Selkirk College Library a licence to make the work publicly and freely available on the internet in perpetuity to view an copy for non-commercial use, as long as the work is not altered and you receive appropriate acknowledgement. This is the equivalent of a Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND licence.
    4. allows the Library to migrate the work to different formats, in order to ensure that it remains publicly accessible.
  4. Optional step: If you are the copyright holder, you may choose to allow additional types of reuse than the standard SCOLR Submission Agreement by selecting a broader Creative Commons licence from a drop-down list of options.
  5. Upload your digital file(s).

What happens next?

Your work will not immediately appear on the public SCOLR website. Library staff will first verify that it meets the SCOLR submission guidelines. You will receive an email notice when the work has been publicly posted. Library staff will contact you if further information on your submission is required, or if the work does not qualify for inclusion in SCOLR. If you have any questions, please contact the Library.
