Academic Works can accept files of any type (PDFs, image files, audio files, etc.) of any size. Of course, it’s best for each file to be in the appropriate format for its content:
- If the work is an article, chapter, or other textual work, please submit it as a PDF, Rich Text Format (.rtf), or Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file. Academic Works will automatically convert .rtf, .doc, and .docx files to PDF and also create cover pages for these works. (It does not convert or create cover pages for other file types.)
- If the work is a slideshow, data set, or other kind of non-textual work, please submit the file in whatever format makes the most sense for the work. When possible, favor non-proprietary formats (e.g., .csv instead of .xlsx), which are more accessible to users now and in the future.
Academic Works does not stream content (but you can embed streaming content from sites like YouTube and Vimeo) or serve up anything but files – i.e., no live websites, web apps, etc.
