Israel Scholar Works Manuscript Registration Help
How to complete and submit the Registration/Submission
To complete the submission, you must fill in all applicable
fields, and then press the 'Submit' button at the bottom of this submission
form. There is no way to postpone the submission when you have already
done several steps in the submission process, but cannot complete the submission
right now (because you want to check some statements, for example).
If for any reason you leave the submission system before
you press the 'Submit' button, your form will not be transferred to Israel
Scholar. In this case you will need to return to the ISW Manuscript Registration/submission
form and complete it again.
Please note that in case you email your manuscript to
us but failed to submit the Registration/submission form, the manuscript
file will be deleted from our server without opening it and assigning archiving
consideration. In other words, we will open/see your manuscript only after
we receive and review your completed Registration/submission form. This
is a security measure to prevent us from receiving materials not related
to Israel Scholar Works correspondence.
Before you execute the form submission, preview all entries
and double check all fields. Be sure that everything is in order. Once
you press the 'Submit' button, you will no longer be able to make revisions
to the submitted form unless you will decide to process the form again
and to indicate that 'this is an update of the form submitted earlier'.
When the form is submitted, you will see the confirmation
of the form submission. You will also receive an email with the confirmation
of the form submission. You may wish to copy this info for your records.
In case the information that you submitted earlier is
no longer accurate, please return to this form, edit the desired fields
information and submit the form again.
Help is provided for every section of the form. Please
do not hesitate to review the help as it will be opened in a separate window
and thus will not interrupt the form preparation.
Journal/Article Front Matter
Gather complete citation information. In this section
you will be prompted to enter citation information as part of the submission
process. Please provide as much information as possible using the fields
provided in the online submission form. For journal articles, include the
journal title, abbreviated title, ISSN number, publisher name and location,
volume and issue numbers, date, paging, DOI, PubMed ID, and hyperlink (URL)
to the article on the Publisher/other web site(s). For book chapters, include
authors' names, the book title, place of publication, publisher name, date,
pagination, and URL. For thesis, include the author name, the University
and place of publication, date, and pagination. Include an URL for items
published on a Web site (such as a personal page or an electronic journal).
Decide into which collection (life sciences; chemistry;
physics; etc) you will submit your works by making selection on the popup
list. In case your manuscript collection is not present on the list please
specify it in the field right below the popup list.
It is easy to enter the manuscript title: Simply, copy
it from the manuscript file of your article, and paste it to the title
The ideal abbreviated title should be short descriptive
clause, not full sentence.
In case you have special characters in the title you will
need to use one or another special HTML markup in the title field. For
example, you could use H<SUB>2</SUB>O to make the symbol for water,
H2O2. The best, however, is to avoid using special characters in the title.
Provide detailed list of key words
Carefully think about keywords. Key words will help global
audience locate your work. Keywords and key word phrases can be pulled
from the work itself, or they can be concepts that describe what the work
is about. Keywords are especially important for works that are non-textual,
such as images.
Summary or abstract
Simply copy and paste the text from your manuscript file
to the abstract field. Alternatively, you can type the text directly into
the form (but why would you do that?).
Should you decide to prepare additional lay language abstract
we expect that it will explain to lay readers why the research was done
and why the results are important. Lay summary should be 100-300 words,
present the paper's major point, and outline the results and conclusions
in non-technical lay language.

note that all fields are required. The email address is particularly important:

Disclaimers and submission terms acceptance
This section asks submitters to review and acknowledge
the terms and conditions of their submission. Authors and/or their institutions
should ensure that their Israel Scholar Works submissions are consistent
with any other agreements, including copyright assignments that they may
have, or enter into, with publishers or other third parties. For a list
of publisher policies as they relate to postprints, visit the SHERPA
web site. To search self-archiving policy by journal please click

Info by Israel Scholar.
Please check the appropriate boxes in all fields of the
'Disclaimers and submission terms acceptance' box.
Particularly, you have to accept terms regarding submission
of a manuscript to Israel Scholar Works Archive.
Confirm that by submitting a manuscript, the submitter
and the corresponding author accept the responsibility that all authors
have agreed with the article submission to Israel Scholar Works Archive.
Any changes in authorship (compared to original oublication)
must be approved in writing by all the original authors.
Granting to Israel Scholar the right to disseminate
your article postscript
As a part of your submission, you will also have to grant
to Israel Scholar, the right to disseminate your article postscript or
your thesis, provided that the integrity of the article is guaranteed,
that the original publisher is duly identified, and that proper attribution
of authorship and correct complete citation details are endorsed on the
Understand and Accept Israel Scholar Major Archiving
At present many for-profit and learned societies' scientific
publishers allow self archiving and Institutional archiving of scholar
works. For example, see specific language of the self-archiving policy
magazine by AAAS. The latter source further says, that in order "to
qualify as a personal web site the site must be devoted to the author's
research and owned by the author (or if the author's employer is a non-profit
institution, owned by that institution)."
To meet such requirement by publishers you will have to
agree (upon submission of your work published previously) with "personal
website" definition of your Israel Scholar Works postscript archive web
folder, the publication unit in Israel Scholar Works.
Verify Your Copyright
If the work has been published previously, check your
copyright transfer form to be sure you have the right to post it. Check
current policies of your publisher, because new regulations may override
the terms you accepted in the past and presently allow archiving. Further
info is available at Israel Scholar Essential Copyright Info page
Please note that your manuscript will not be considered
for publication in the Israel Scholar Works unless you first confirm all
items in the Disclaimers section.
Paste or enter general information regarding the submission
of your manuscript that are typically included in the cover letter (such
as a statement of the main point and relation of the paper to prior work).
If you don't have any comments, leave the 'Cover Letter'
