To make a submission, select the New Submission link at your User Home page. The submission process consists of five steps.
STEP ONE: STARTING THE SUBMISSION

STEP TWO: UPLOADING THE SUBMISSION
Submission Step Two allows you to upload the submission file, typically a wordprocessing document. Search the file on your computer and upload it. Then click Save and continue.
STEP THREE: ENTERING THE SUBMISSION'S METADATA

STEP FOUR: UPLOADING SUPPLEMENTARY FILES
This step is optional. If you do not want to load any more files, simply click Save and continue.
If you have any supplementary files, such as research instruments, data sets, etc., you may add them here. These files are also indexed by the author, identifying their relation to the submission, as well as their ownership. Supplementary files can be uploaded in any file format and will be made available to readers in their original format.
Locate the file you wish to submit, upload it and click Save and continue.
STEP FIVE: CONFIRMING THE SUBMISSION
This final step provides a summary of your submission. Click Finish Submission.
