Deposit Non-traditional Research Outputs in Elements for discovery in OAR

The OA Procedure requires researchers to deposit their, non-traditional research output (NTRO) metadata and a NTRO digital representation in Elements.  The metadata only needs to be discoverable in the Open Access Repository (OAR).

Deposit NTRO in Elements 

  1. Create a metadata record for your NTRO following the How to manually claim research outputs instructions

  2. Follow the Deposit a research output from Elements into OAR to deposit your NTRO Digital Representation

  3. Once deposited, the Library's OA assessment team reviews the digital output file for any third party copyright prior to making discoverable in the OAR.

See Manage your research outputs ( for more information.
