Step-By-Step Guide of How to Submit Your Symposium Presentation

Step 1

Navigate to the DigitalCommons@Linfield Symposium Collection

Step 2 

Click the "Submit Event" button: The very bottom link in the left-hand purple sidebar on the page. You should be prompted to login or sign-up. 

Sign-up if you have not done so before on the DigitalCommons website using your Linfield email. You will be sent an email with an activation link. 

If the confirmation email does not reach your inbox, please check your spam or junk folders as it is highly likely it went to these.

Step 3

The "Submit Event" button takes you right to the form to submit your event. Fill out all required fields (indicated by a red banner with the word "required" next to the field title).

ONLY ONE SUBMISSION PER PRESENTATION! If multiple people are presenting one event, only one person needs to submit it to DigitalCommons. All authors/presenters need to be listed with email addresses (preferably Linfield email please).

There are instructions with each required field that further explain their meaning if you have any confusion. If you're still unsure what to put in each field, please don't hesitate to reach out to the DigitalCommons Coordinators.

Step 4

Press "Submit" all the way at the bottom of the page. Please note that for the time being, right before the submit button, disregard the blurb with a link to a Submission Agreement form. Do not worry about the submission agreement, as the link is broken and we are currently working on fixing this issue. For the time being there is no submission agreement.

When your submission has been received...

Once we get notification that you have submitted your symposium presentation, we then can accept the submission, or if information is incorrect/missing, email you to let you know what needs revision before we can accept the event.

When we accept the event, you will get an email with dates, times, and specific instructions about the symposium in general, and broken down by presentation type (poster instructions and oral presentation instructions). 

Please read this email thoroughly as it includes information on when you should be notified of presentation times, when to set up and take down, as well as how to request needed items for presentations.

If you are doing a poster presentation, please send us the poster to upload to DigitalCommons ASAP! This does not need to be done at the time you submit your event, but email it to us as soon as you can.
