March 15th: deadline for registering reports and factsheets
The deadline for registering SLU reports and factsheets from 2016 is March 15th 2017.
You register the publications in SLU:s publication database (SLUpub), with the full text attached. The publications will then automatically be transferred to the university´s open access archive Epsilon.
Since a vice-chancellor decision 2014 it is obligatory to deposit all student theses, PhD theses, reports and factsheets from SLU in Epsilon. The decision also recommends all SLU researchers to publish their articles open access.
Making publications available in Epsilon makes them easy to find in big search engines and easy to share in social networks. Another advantage is that each document has a unique and persistent URL. Regardless of where the Epsilon archive is placed in the future, this link will work and lead to your publication
