Guidelines for submission

The purpose of the Open Access Institutional Digital Repository of the Centro Atómico Bariloche and Instituto Balseiro (RICABIB) is to increment the visibility of academic, scientific and other institutional output, without economic barriers or copyright restrictions.

To include your research outputs in RICABIB you must first create an account. You are then guided through a series of input screens. Adding items is straightforward and only takes a few minutes. After creating your account click on LOGIN and then on the MANAGE DEPOSITS button and select NEW ITEM a new screen will open with the following buttons:

  • To add an item first click on ITEM TYPE, each item type has a short explanation, choose an item. Click on UPLOAD to upload the PDF or any other file, then click on DETAILS to complete de metadata requested. Click on SUBJECTS to select one or more from the options (click on + to expand subjects).

    At any time in this process you can click on the SAVE FOR LATER button to interrupt submission and take it up later.

    Having concluded the previous steps click on DEPOSIT.

    Your document will not be publicly available until it has been checked by library staff. Once this has been done the document is published in RICABIB, concluding the self-archiving process.

    If you wish to publish an article previously sent or published by a peer reviewed journal, first verify the publishers policy on self archiving, at:
