You get to the input workflow as a submitter via the Manage deposits button and "New Item".

Communities & Collections

You should record all departments and organizations (institute, clinic, center, division) involved in a publication under the header Communities & Collections. The publication will then appear in all academic reports concerning the specified departments and organizations.


Under the header type, you may select the type of your publication. Please note that conference papers can only be included if they have been published. FAQs publication types


Under the header details, you enter the bibliographic information of publications as well as the ZORA-specific data (original work, peer-reviewed). Imported publications already have many of the fields pre-filled in this section.


Under this section, you can set the visibility settings, embargo periods, and Creative Commons licenses per individual, uploaded file.

Specify under Copyright whether the full-text version uploaded under details may be shown freely or not. This information can vary from publication to publication and depends on the publishing contracts that authors usually sign with publishers.
Please indicate if no contract has been signed. In this case, the publishing law of the Swiss Code of Obligations applies.
