Select the assignment and file.

If you clicked on a particular assignment, VeriCite will default to that assignment in the drop-down menu on the submission screen. If you selected the Submit Paper tab at the top, the assignment drop-down menu will say "None."

  1. Select the appropriate assignment in the Assignment drop-down menu (if necessary). Remember that you may also select "None" if there is no previously created assignment for the item you want to submit. After you have selected an assignment, the assignment description will display just above the file upload area.
  2. Select and drag the file or files you would like to upload from your computer into the Drop Files to upload area and release. Or, click anywhere within the Drop files area to browse for and select the file from your computer.
  3. If you prefer to submit in-line text instead of a file attachment, click the or copy/paste text link to paste in the submission text instead of step 2.

Note: You may also upload a zip file to submit multiple files at once. (There is a limit of 100 files, and 100MB total unzipped file size per zip file.)

  2. (Optional) Edit Title of the submission. The default Title will be the filename, but this can be modified if desired.
  3. Click Submit Papers to submit all files at once.
