Completing a Symplectic Elements deposit

If you have received an email from an ORA reviewer requesting you to complete your Symplectic Elements deposit, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to and log in to Symplectic (on right hand side) with your Single Sign-On.

  2. This takes you to the welcome page. In My Actions you should have a prompt field “View existing publications awaiting deposit”. Alternatively you can click on ‘Publications’ on the left hand side menu.

  3. Find the publication (if you have many publications on your profile, it may be helpful to use the filters on the left hand side menu to locate the item). When you have found the record, click “go to the deposit page”, the little blue button with an upwards arrow.

  4. The deposit page should show that you have already uploaded a file. Click “deposit my publication”. The deposit will be completed and you are forwarded to your publication list.
