Open Access Publishing at UC Davis

UC Publication Management System

To assist UC authors covered by UC open access policies, the UC Publication Management System (UCPMS) is available to Senate Faculty and non-Senate UC Employees.

Managing Publications in the UCPMS

For Senate Faculty
Senate faculty authors are contacted via email to verify their list of articles within the UC Publication Management System (UCPMS) and to upload a copy of the final manuscript or to provide a link to an open access version of their publications. Faculty can also log in to the system at any time by visiting the UC Publication Management System at oapolicy.universityofcalifornia.edu. For a quick start guide, view this step-by-step PDF or visit the UC Office of Scholarly Communication page.

The following steps may be helpful:

  • Use your UCD Kerberos logon to log in to the UCPMS linked in the email.
  • After you log in, there’s a two-step process to follow.
    You will first need to confirm authorship of articles that seem to match your name and credentials. The system then identifies which of those articles are covered by the policies, and provides a way to upload the manuscripts (or a link to the open access full text) to complete the deposit.
  • You can delegate management of your publications to someone else, such as departmental support staff. Click on the relevant link in the email for instructions.
  • If you have any trouble, contact us at OAsupport@ucdavis.edu.

For Non-Senate UC Employees
Deposit for these authors is managed through eScholarship, UC’s open access repository and publishing platform. Visit this UC site and select your campus in the drop-down menu, to begin the deposit process – or to notify us that your publication is already available in another open access repository. (Note: you will be asked to log in. If you don’t yet have an eScholarship account, you will have the opportunity to create one.) For a quick start guide, view this step-by-step PDF or visit the UC Office of Scholarly Communication page.
