Deposit your research: Faculty & Staff

Waterloo Faculty & Staff can deposit their research to UWSpace to make it Open Access and to comply with the Tri-Agency's Open Access Policy for Publications.

Before depositing your research:

  1. Confirm that your deposit type is currently accepted: Article (Peer-Reviewed), Preprint Conference Paper, Technical Report, White Paper.
  2. Confirm that you have the right to make a deposit by conferring with SHERPA/RoMEO and your publisher. Your publisher may require you to meet certain conditions. This usually involves inserting a publisher's acknowledgement statement containing the publisher's name and a link to the Version of Record directly into your PDF. We're happy to help with this!
  3. Make an accessible copy of your article following the University’s recommended instructions for formatting your work as a PDF/UAOtherwise use the Creating a PDF version Instructions to create a PDF/A version.
  4. Review the UWSpace Non-Exclusive Distribution License that you must accept to complete your deposit.

To deposit your research, click on the Faculty & Staff link on the UWSpace homepage to begin. You'll be prompted to log in with your WatIAM credentials.
