Depositing your article

There are two methods to deposit your article in the Research Information System (RIS), which includes the University's outputs and research repository:

  1. Deposit the item yourself in RIS using the RIS Outputs and Research Repository User Guide.
    First time users of RIS can find guidance on how to register at the dedicated RIS Moodle training site (log-in required).
    Registered users may log in to RIS here: Login to RIS
    (This is the route for types of publication other than journal articles and conference papers)
  2. Use the  Mediated Deposit Service 
Postgraduate research students should read the special instructions below which apply to them.

Mediated Deposit Service

This service is offered by University of Nottingham Libraries to help you deposit articles and conference papers in RIS.

How to use the service

Email the Open Access team at  openaccess@nottingham.ac.uk with ‘Mediated deposit request - Date of Acceptance: DD.MM.YYYY’ in the subject line. It is vital that you include the date of acceptance (and, if applicable, of publication) in the subject line so that the team can prioritise requests in line with REF eligibility deadlines. 

Please send a separate email for each item you would like us to deposit for you.
