Improvements to the SDR self-deposit web app coming soon!

You may continue depositing as usual while we're making improvements.

The web application at used by most folks at Stanford to deposit content into the Stanford Digital Repository will be undergoing some improvements over the summer. Work is slated for June 26 - August 11. 

Our development team will be hard at work on new features to improve your SDR deposit experience during this time.

You will be able to continue depositing as usual while we are working. We do not anticipate any down-time for SDR services during this period. 

Updates and improvements will be rolled out as they are completed throughout the work cycle, so you won't need to wait until the end to see what we've been up to. Changes will typically be rolled out on Mondays (or at least early in the week). You may see changes as early as July 10, and more should come weekly through the middle of August.

Read more below to see what sort of things we have in store!

Feature improvements on deck for the upcoming work period:


  • Improvements to the Globus workflow for uploading > 10 GB of content.
  • Additional fields to support better descriptions and publisher requirements for Open Access articles.
  • Automatic sending of deposited works to author and contributor ORCID records.
    • Only for Stanford authors whose ORCIDs are included in the metadata and who have authorized Stanford to write to their ORCID record.
  • Ability to include affiliations for authors and contributors.
