You can check out this SlideShare presentation from 2015, or this presentation from 2017, or, if you really want to get into the weeds, you can check out the white paper from our NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant. If you still have questions, please do get in touch.
You have the option to correct a mistake on your CORE deposit for a short period after you’ve submitted the deposit.
Before the deposit is published, you can click on the “Edit this Deposit” button to make any updates.
If the provisional period has passed, you can email us with the deposit’s DOI and the corrections you’d like made and we’ll fix it for you.
When you upload work to CORE, you have the option to share the item with groups. When you click in to the field to select groups, you’ll see a drop-down list of your groups. You can also begin to type the name of a group to select it.
Go the group’s page on the Commons and click on From CORE in the group menu.
Policies vary by publisher and journal. Look up the journal or publisher by name in the SHERPA-RoMEO database to find out its policies covering archiving—referred to on the Commons as depositing. For example, if your article was published in PMLA, you may deposit preprint (not yet peer-reviewed) versions of the article as well as postprint (peer-reviewed) articles. You may also publish the PDF file available from the publisher as long as you comply with certain conditions. If your article is published in French Studies, for instance, you may deposit a preprint version before it is accepted and a postprint version after a two-year embargo but not the publisher’s PDF file.
If you wish to deposit a book chapter or a monograph, please check your agreement with the publisher.
Works deposited in CORE are covered by the Humanities Commons Terms of Service, which stipulate that members may not use your content without your specific consent or unless you share it under a Creative Commons license.
If you are depositing an image, data set, or other item that you would like to make available to other scholars, we encourage you to grant such permission by way of a Creative Commons license. You have the option to attribute such a license to your work at the time of deposit.
To cite an item not covered by the usual style guides, we recommend that you include the following information: author name(s), title, date of creation, version or edition (if any), permanent URL, and DOI.
The maximum file size for a single item is 100 megabytes. Need to upload something larger? Let us know.
