How the Submit Links Work
When a user clicks a publication link on the Submit Research page, one of two things will occur. If the publication has been set up to receive submissions, the user will be directed to the submission form for that publication. A publication can be set up to receive outside submissions by checking the Show link to submit form option in the publication’s configurations. This will also display a Submit Research link in the publication’s sidebar.
If this option has not been checked, the user will need to log in to their bepress account and will then be directed to a “Contact Administrators” email form for the publication. From there, the user may email the repository administrators about submitting content.
When an administrator uses the above setting to change whether a publication accepts outside submissions, an update is required both at the publication level and at the site level. Running an update at the site level ensures that users are routed appropriately when submitting from the Submit Research page.
