What happens after I have uploaded a document?

After uploading a document the data is stored together with the corresponding metadata in a nonpublic intermediate storage. Here the data is undertaken a test of functionality and formalities by the library. The document is published as soon as the publication contract is signed and handed over to the library. The handover must have taken place in the deadline of two weeks after uploading your documents to the OPUS-server. If the documents are not handed to us within the deadline your data is deleted from the intermediate storage.
