UWC Research Repository (IR)

The University of Western Cape's Research Repository was established in 2010 to provide online access to UWC research output.

Depositing manuscripts accepted for publication

Feedback from researchers regarding the deposit of articles to the Research Repository prompted the development of a holding platform called the Article Drop.  The purpose of this portal is to facilitate the deposit of articles with the Research Repository without depositing the article directly into the repository.

To upload an accepted manuscript or article:

  1. Open the Article Drop online;
  2. Click "Upload Your Manuscript";
  3. Enter the required information;
  4. Selected your file and click "Open";
  5. Click "Upload Manuscript".
