WinnSpace Help

Any University of Winnipeg Faculty member is encouraged to submit their works - including articles, conference papers, reports, and other grey literature - to WinnSpace, Uwinnipeg's Open Access Repository. Students are encouraged to submit their theses.

There are two easy ways to do this: self archiving, or full service help.

In order to have one of our specialists assit you with submissions, you are encouraged to contact with your CV, or other materials you would like submitted to the IR. It would assist us greatly if you could include:

  • citation information
  • abstracts and relevant keywords (if not already included in the text of the material)
  • a copy of your publication agreement, if you have it
  • files if you wish to publish a pre- or post-print

The WinnSpace team will identify any copyright issues, and inform you which items/ copies are eligible for deposit. Please note that some publishers specify that only post-print versions (sometimes called the manuscript, or unformatted version) are eligible, in which case we need you to provide that copy.

The WinnSpace team can also assist you with:

  • securing permissions to archive previously published material
  • requesting permission for publisher's PDF version (template available for download)
  • keeping copies of publisher's agreements (not available for public viewing)
  • submitting materials to be automatically visible at the end of an embargo period
  • making older print material accessible
