If the record of your publication already exists within BRIAN, you simply need to scroll to it and ‘claim’ it. Otherwise, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on ‘Go to next step". You can then populate all relevant information of your publication on the following page. Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom to ‘save’ your record!
Step 2 – Once the publication record exists within BRIAN, click on the blue arrow up icon, and you will be taken to the deposit page
Step 3 – Locate the correct version of your full text in accordance with the policy advice from Sherpa Romeo; and then click ‘upload’.
When the upload is complete, you will be notified on the screen that your full text is under review by the BURO team. Once the BURO team has checked for copyright compliance and published the output, the link to the full text in BURO will be created and the link will also appear on your Staff Profile Page.
