Overview of the Process
After you submit your paper a Digital Commons Administrator will review your submission and publish your work on the site. You will be notified by e-mail when the paper is posted.
If you publish this paper or a revised version elsewhere, for example in a journal, please send the citation of the new version to the USM Digital Commons Site Administrator, Jessica Hovey, firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be able to inform the research community about the new version.
If you would like to post a revised version of your paper on the site, please follow the instructions in How to Submit; (see above) however, please specify when you submit the paper that it is a revision of a previously submitted paper.
