The steps for publishing a new issue vary depending on whether your journal is using DOIs. If you are using DOIs, read every step. If you are not, skip to Step 2.
If you wish to list your new issue's contents into sections (e.g., Front Matter or Book Reviews), let us know (email trace.utk.edu) at this stage. We will create sections (see example below).
You can follow along with the steps below in this video tutorial.
If you publish articles on a rolling basis, use this process to upload 1 article at a time:
An alternative to uploading articles one at a time is the Batch Upload method. This method involves filling out an Excel spreadsheet with all necessary metadata plus the full-text files for each article. For this to work, the full-text files must be hosted on a publicly accessible server. Follow the steps for “Batch Upload” in this bepress guide or see them demonstrated in this video tutorial. You'll be notified that your upload is queued for update and when the update is complete. (If you don't get an email that your update is complete/queue has been cleared after 24 hours, contact firstname.lastname@example.org because this means the batch will not go through and bepress tech support is needed.)
If you are not using DOIs in your journal, uploading is the last step of the new issue creation process. Congratulations on your new issue!
Email email@example.com to confirm publication of your issue (or individual articles, if you publish on a rolling basis). A librarian will then mint each DOI and ensure all DOIs are active.
