SORA Contributor Guidelines

SORA enables users to search for articles, view publication details, and download a PDF copy of the article text. Our goal is for all articles to be full-text searchable but we need the help of our partners to make this a reality.

UNM staff and graduate fellows can process and upload materials as time permits; if you would like to manage your own publication on SORA, please contact and we can set up a publisher account for you.

To get started, we need to receive one PDF file for each journal issue (128 MB maximum size) via email or Dropbox. If you can provide the table of contents formatted in HTML using the template below, this will assist researchers in finding desired materials. DISC can create this HTML file; however, this will slow down the ingest of your publication.

New content processing and ingestion into SORA can take 1-4 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the content submission.

Once your submission files are ready, email your files to or share your Dropbox folder with DISC.
