Publish in Epsilon
This page contains information on the SLU open archive Epsilon. You will also find guides on how to format different publication types and how to deposit them in Epsilon.
What is Epsilon?
Epsilon is an Open Access archive for electronic publishing of SLU publications. All dissertations, student projects, reports and factsheets produced at the university are published in Epsilon, together with several other publications. Epsilon communicates with numerous other archives, search engines and databases so its circulation will be global. All available in full text!
Epsilon provides persistent links
The Internet is inconstant. A web page that is online one day may be gone the next. One of the many advantages of depositing your publication in Epsilon is the possibility to create a so called persistent link to your text. Regardless of where Epsilon is placed in the future, this link will work and lead to your publication.
A persistent link is possible thanks to something called URN, Uniform Resource Number. All documents deposited into one of the Epsilon archives are automatically assigned an URN:NBN which is then used to create the persistent link.
How to find and use your document's unique persistent link:
- Find the so called abstract page of your document in the Epsilon archive: For example: http://pub.epsilon.slu.se/5056/
- Look for the header Permanent URL to find the link. In our example this is: http://urn.kb.se/resolve?urn=urn:nbn:se:slu:epsilon-4-294
- Use this persistent link whenever you want to share your document, e.g. in an e-mail, in another publication, on your personal home page.
Management and support
The library is administrating the system, and support users at al levels. Once deposited, your publication will be checked and more metadata will be added before the publication becomes available online. Turn to us when you have questions!
