Student Journals: Submitting final files for upload to Westlaw / LexisNexis

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).

PRINT Journals- instructions

For those of you who are still in print, you will need to do the following:

Email JCI <online@christensen.com> and the Journal Administrator <journals@law.berkeley.edu>:

  • Final Word Doc of each article file (you do not need to edit out the banner lines)

Make certain that your files have been uploaded to your page on the Law School's Scholarship Repository

Make certain that you have SAVED the files below to your Journal's shared drive.

  1. Final Word Doc of each article file
  2. PDF files of each article created from the final Word docs
  3. Table of Contents- does not need any special formatting.
