Faculty Research Deposit

Materials can generally be self-deposited into the AU Research Archive (AURA). Faculty can log in using AU credentials to upload materials, and AU staff and students can request an account through this form.

Once you log in, there are several ways to start the deposit process, including the "Upload" button in the upper-left of the screen or the "Create a new item" button in the "My data" tab. If this is your first time adding content you can also click or drag files into the middle of the "My data" tab.
