Since SUNScholar is an institutional repository, it belongs to all at Stellenbosch University. It is at the same time an organizational commitment towards preserving our most valuable assets - our research output. Therefore we need everybody's help in populating our repository.
Some strategies that can be followed:
- Submit full text articles by tracking them from the annual University research report. It is recommended that one works retrospectively according to a specific department.
- Download the full text from the database in which an article was published. Please contact your faculty librarian for help in this regard.
- Always first check whether the article hasn't already been submitted to SUNScholar. If it has been submitted, but belongs to more than one department, it can be mapped to various Collections. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
- The research reports are available from: http://www0.sun.ac.za/research/en/research-report
- Conduct an "Affiliation" search within Scopus. Use: "Stellenbosch University"
- The search can be narrowed down to a specific journal, author, etc. Please contact your faculty librarian for help in this regard.
- Download the full text files, and use the metadata to submit your item to SUNScholar.
- The metadata lists can also be exported in .csv format, and imported into SUNScholar. The full text will still need to be attached to each individual item. Please contact email@example.com for assistance.
- Articles by BioMed Central are deposited in SUNScholar using the SWORD interface. See http://www.biomedcentral.com/info/libraries/sword. In future SUNScholar will be automatically updated once one of our researchers publishes an article with BioMed Central. Contact: Matt Brown E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you are a publisher and would like to batch deposit articles in our repository, please contact email@example.com.
- If you have a copy (preprint, galley proof copy, postprint) of an article you want to submit, please continue to do so.
- Please remember to always first check whether the article hasn't already been submitted to SUNScholar.
