Publication Support and Information
The Law Librarians strive to support your scholarship needs. As such, the following services and information are provided to assist you in promoting your scholarship.
UF Law Scholarship Repository
The UF Law Scholarship Repository is a permanent archive of the work of the scholars of UF Law. It hosts faculty scholarship, the Florida Law Review, and special event proceedings, such as the Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations Lecture proceedings. As a UF Law faculty member, your works will automatically be entered into the repository. If you have any questions, please contact your liaison.
The Social Science Research Network contains many working and final papers on a wide variety of topics. Accounts are free to create. If you need assistance uploading your papers to SSRN, please contact your liaison. Specific information is needed for each paper prior to uploading. We have created a form to facilitate the process.
Expresso is one of the two main electronic article submission services for law journal articles. The Legal Information Center does NOT maintain the law school’s account for this service. UF Law does, however, maintain an account, which will cover all Law Faculty submissions through this service. Expresso maintains a very good Frequently Asked Questions page that walks you through creating an account, the submission process, and post-submission issues.
Scholastica is the newer of the two main electronic article submission services for law journal articles. UF Law maintains an account with this service, but again, the Legal Information Center is NOT the account provider. Scholastica has fewer law reviews, but some exclusive law reviews, such as The University of Chicago Law Review. For a complete list, Click Here. Scholastica provides a short video to explain the submission process. They also have a thorough help page to explain the submission process, management of submissions, and other issues.
Google Scholar Citations
Google Scholar Citations is a free service provided by Google that tracks article citations. It allows authors to “check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics.” Google Scholar Citations provides an excellent guide to setting up an account. If you need assistance, please contact your liaison.
If you have any further questions about ways that the Law Librarians can assist you in supporting or promoting your research, please do not hesitate to contact your liaison.
