While Shareyourpaper.org itself is fully responsive and works at all screen sizes, this set up doesn't. The setup system lets you interactive and adjust the alongside detailed explainations of what you're seeing and why. That just doesn't work so well on a phone.

Please come back on your computer.

We're in Beta. Schedule a time to get demos / help with setup. Please report problems if you find them.

Repository

Shareyourpaper.org can work with any repository. Our job is to make it easy for authors to do a legal deposit, and then get the files to you as conveniently as possible.

By default, we’ll email you the files and associated metadata and permissions information.

How would you like to get deposits into your repository?

In all these cases, we want to export this in the easiest format for your repository. If you make a converter (e.g to take spreadsheets we give and make it easy to put in DSpace or Bepress), please let us know and we’ll build it in!

1 of 6: General

These questions help make sure shareyourpaper.org performs how you and authors expect. There are multiple parts to this, and you’ll be able to set up your preferences for different types of deposit, metadata, and more.

What is the name of your repository?


Where can we find the terms and conditions of usage for your repository


How do people currently do deposits?

This can either be a link, for example to a deposit form, or an email address if you only do mediated deposit.

2 of 6: Open Access Deposit

When something is Open Access already, we let authors know!

You have a choice: by default, we let scholars confirm they want it in your repository, too. Or, if you’d prefer not to, we won’t..

Turn off the ability to deposit already open access content?

Yes

Go to Menu

3 of 6: Deposit when publisher PDFs are allowed

Occasionally, subscription journals will allow you to deposit a publisher's PDF. If they do, we know that, and will show that option.

Right now, there is nothing to configure here, we’re just letting you know. Soon, we’ll let you have authors only give their email address, not the file, to confirm deposit. That’ll make it a bit easier for authors, and a bit more work for you.

Go to Menu

4 of 6: Request-only Deposit

Request-only deposit is where publisher PDFs which can’t be shared openly are stored in the repository and only accessible on request. It's often known as dark deposit. This process allows on-request access instead of systematic distribution.

Note: When we come out of testing, we'll let you change this!

Would you like to turn off dark deposit?

Please note. We recommend against this, as it allows authors to always make their work more available. If you turn it off, the tool will suggest they request permissions from the journal.

Yes

5 of 6: Metadata (coming soon)

We gather almost all essential metadata automatically, however, we plan to allow customized manual metadata input after deposit (e.g department info).

Since this will take work on our part, we can only provide this to libraries who support our work through our leadership tier. To find our more, go here.

Of course, at any time, you’re free to put cover sheets on what we give you, but doing it this way gives you less work and is how we sustain the tool.

6 of 6: Coversheets (coming soon)

We want to make sure your authors work looks professional, and shares your brand. To do that, we plan to add cover sheets to each record.

Open Access Policy (Coming Soon)

If you have an Open Access Policy that gives your patrons more rights to deposit (i.e Harvard style), you can tell us about it. If you don’t, or only have a policy that encourages deposit, you can skip this.

What is your institutions’ Research Organization Registry ID (ROR ID)?

You can find the ID here. If there isn’t a ROR for the institution with the policy, e.g a University Library, choose the university instead.

Website & Brand

Shareyourpaper.org can be integrated onto any webpage on your website, and blend in with your brand.

To do that copy and paste the following into the source code (HTML) (or ask a developer to):

<div id="shareyourpaper"></div>
<script src="https://openaccessbutton.org/static/embed/oab_embed.js"></script>
<script>_oab=shareyourpaper({config: });</script>

Then, you should be good to go! If not, review our advanced settings.

Pilot & Rollout

Once you're all set up, and you know it's working, it's time to put Shareyourpaper.org in patron's hands.

Have you rolled it out?

Only click this around when you rollout Shareyourpaper.org to patrons. This helps us support you best, and understand how we're doing.

Yes

Activate pilot mode?

Pilot mode makes it easy to rollout a pilot. Patrons will know why you're trying something new, be able to give feedback and go back to old way.

Yes

Can others contact you to find out about Shareyourpaper.org?

Yes, sign me up!

Outreach

We know how important outreach is to getting deposits, both from you and champions outside the library. Our hope is that Shareyourpaper.org frees up time to do outreach, and makes it more effective as depositing is easier to do and recommend to others.

To make outreach easier, we’ve given every paper a direct link to deposit into your repository.

Once you embed shareyourpaper.org onto your website and use it in any way, we’ll be able to show you a real link.

When you click this link, you’ll be taken direct to the simplest way to deposit your work. You can use them in emails (including to generate mail merges), and be sure that if the paper isn’t already Open Access, the person getting the link will be able to make the work more open.
