The Tarlton Law Library’s physical facility, including Special Collections, is closed until further notice. Tarlton’s librarians and staff remain actively engaged in providing library services. Student tech support (firstname.lastname@example.org) and faculty and student reference assistance (https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/email) will be available during business hours. Students can also consult our Library and Technology Support FAQ (https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/student-remote) for most frequently needed information.
UT faculty have access to a few different resources to electronically submit articles to individual or multiple law journals:
SSRN offers eSubmission to UT faculty. To use this service, first log on to http://hq.ssrn.com and upload abstracts and papers to the SSRN database. Now authors can select the "eSubmission" icon to submit abstracts and PDF copies of articles to one or more participating journals. When launched, eSubmission had 150 participating journals; 60 more journals are in the process of joining.
Expresso is a product of Berkeley Electronic Press (Bepress). UT authors can log on to http://law.bepress.com/expresso and upload articles, cover letters and CVs. Authors can also use this service to submit the article to any of 400 participating journals. While Expresso generally sends journals electronic copies of each article, it will mail print copies to those journals that require paper submissions.
Scholastica allows authors to to upload and submit articles to multiple law journals. Users should first sign-up for an account before making submissions.
Works can be suppressed from public view if the author so desires.
Reminder: To post a work to SSRN or BePress, you must hold the copyright to that work, or have the approval of the copyright holder to do so.
The Library maintains a permanent collection of faculty writings in Archives and Special Collections as part of the School of Law archives. This collection includes scholarly publications in all print formats. Faculty members wishing to be included in the collection should submit copies of their publications to the department via their library liaison.
The Library actively builds and maintains digital collections in the UT Digital Repository. Currently, the repository houses back issues of the Faculty Publications Newsletter, which continues to announce new faculty scholarship as it is published.
