Faculty & Researchers

Here UT faculty and researchers can find additional resources and help for submitting content to Trace. There are two ways for faculty to submit their work to Trace: (1) by submitting an article directly into a department in Trace, or (2) creating a personal SelectedWorks site where all scholarly work can be included. The links below offer information and guidance on how to submit works directly to Trace as well as through SelectedWorks, a service offered by Trace.
