UIS Faculty, staff, and graduate students can deposit their research and scholarship—unpublished and, in many cases, published—directly into IDEALS. Departments can use IDEALS to distribute their working papers, technical reports, or other research material.
If you have not deposited material into IDEALS before, please follow this two-step process: 1) Login to IDEALS using your NetID and password (login option found in the upper left hand corner of the webpage); and 2) After you have logged into IDEALS, contact Tom Wood at email@example.com and note your faculty/staff/student status and what department you belong to. You will then be granted submittal rights to the appropriate collection. Before submitting, please be sure to review the guidelines for depositing your work.
Please note, if your program or department is not listed amongst the UIS collections and you would like to have a collection created for it, please contact Tom Wood.
