Submission of publications related to DoE grant funding is required when the article has been accepted for publication. Submissions go through the ELink system. It is the same system and process that DoE has been using for technical report submission for some time.
Start at the ELink Home page. Click on the Financial Assistance Recipients link.
Click on the link to submit tech reports, journal articles, or other content such as conference proceedings papers.
On the next screen, enter metadata about your publication and grant. If you are unsure about what grant information to enter, contact your PI, or contact OSP.
You'll have the option to select what type of STI product you are submitting (journal article, etc).
Further down the page, add more metadata about your publication and your DoE Program Office sponsor.
Further down this same screen, enter point of contact information, and upload the the author manuscript file to the ELink system.
Submit your paper.
