Student Journals: Uploading content to repository

Final Steps

Once the article files are finalized, there are a few final steps:

  • Print Journals should email final Word docs to Anupriya Tyagi <Anupriya.Tyagi@kwglobal.com>, and they'll be uploaded to Lexis and Westlaw.     (Online-only journals content will be uploaded to our online content providers from their pages on the Repository, and do not have to send them to the printer).
  • Email the final pdf version of each article to the authors.  As a courtesy, and also to let them know that the final okay to print has been given and that they can expect their complimentary copies of the issue (and offprints) a few weeks after the completion date.
  • Both print AND online-only journals should upload final pdfs of articles to your Journal page on the BerkeleyLaw Scholarship Repository
          Crop final pdfs to exclude print guide and banner lines prior to posting
          Forward cropped pdfs and any frontmatter files to Maro (mvmanou@law.berkeley.edu) to initiate the upload process
          Contact  Joe Cera (jcera@law.berkeley.edu) with questions regarding editor access or uploading content
  • Upload final Word and pdfs of your articles to your Journal’s Shared Drive, along with Author Agreements and any other relevant files. 

Last step! Submitting files for upload to Westlaw/ Lexis

You're almost there!   You've finished production, formatting, editing, contract proofs, and have given the OK to print to the printer, or for online-only journals have posted your content to your Journal's website on the Scholarship Repository!

If you have not already done so, you will need to upload the final Word and PDF documents of your articles to your Journal's shared drive so that the content is archived and accessible to future ed boards and the Journal Administrator.

There is an important last step which you need to take in order to make sure your content gets posted to our third party online content providers, Westlaw and Lexis.

See below for how to go about doing that (as it varies for journals in print and journals which are online-only).
