To include your works in NEIU Digital Commons, please follow the steps below.
Upon receiving your work(s), we will check for copyright restrictions. At this point, we may respond to let you know that the published version may not be included in the repository due to copyright restrictions. Depending on the agreement, you may be able to submit a peer-reviewed manuscript or a pre-print of the work. If you would rather not submit one of those versions, we can still include a bibliographic citation for the work.
When we have assured copyright compliance, we will prepare the article or citation for submission to NEIU Digital Commons and provide, for your approval, a preview of your submission before depositing the work in NEIU Digital Commons.
If you have any questions about this process, please email email@example.com.
