Q: I deposited my paper on the Research Repository but it isn’t showing up – what’s going on?

A: The most likely explanation is that the deposit process was not completed. The final step in depositing the paper is hitting the ‘Deposit Item Now’ button on the Deposit screen:

Deposit

Just clicking through to the Deposit screen is not enough – you must click this button.

You can tell when an item has been successfully deposited because the item status will change from ‘User Workarea‘ to ‘Under Review‘. Later, once it has been checked by a repository administrator, it will be moved to the live repository and the status will change to ‘Live Archive‘.
