As of 2014 the Vice-Chancellor's decision is that all reports and factsheets produced by SLU shall be deposited in Epsilon, the SLU open access archive. The decision also includes a general encouragement for SLU scholars to publish open access. Since an earlier decision, all theses and student theses are also published in the open archive. Publishing in Epsilon makes the publications easily findable by search engines like Google and also makes it easy to share them on social networks. Furthermore, the publications are given a persistent link, by which they will always be accessible no matter where the Epsilon archive is located in the future.
March 1st: deadline for registering reports and factsheets
The deadline for registering reports and factsheets from the year 2018 in the SLU publication database (SLUpub) has been set to March 1st, 2019.
The publications are to be registered in the SLU publication database (SLUpub) with a full text file. The file will then be automatically transferred from SLUpub to the university open access archive Epsilon.
Don't hesitate to contact the library if you have any questions!
