Knowledge Bank submission
The Knowledge Bank is a permanent archive, meaning projects should be in their absolute final form before they are submitted. As the instructions state, “All items submitted remain as is at the time of submission, just as books once published remain in the form in which they were printed. PDF files once placed in the Knowledge Bank will not be modified.” Here are the steps for Knowledge Bank submission:
- Students should set up their account through the Knowledge Bank during the final semester of their final project.
- Here is the link for the DNP projects in the Knowledge Bank: https://kb.osu.edu/handle/1811/48671
- Here is the link for the DNP Knowledge Bank instructions: https://library.osu.edu/kb/instructions/doctor-of-nursing-practice
- Here is the approved face page template that should be used: DNP Final Project Cover Page Format Example
- Once the student has successfully defended their project and the Chair and committee have given final approval to the document, the student should submit the final approved document in WORD to Dr. Gerene Bauldoff (Knowledge Bank Faculty Liaison) via email (email@example.com)
- The Faculty Liaison will review the document for correct formatting, etc. If there are major issues, the document will be send it back to the student and the advisor. Please submit the document in Word to permit MINOR formatting changes (pagination, margins, page breaks, etc). Content will not be edited to avoid overstepping the chair or the committee.
- Once the document has been reviewed and approved, it will be converted to the required PDF.
- The PDF document will be emailed back to the student, their chair and Sean Moodie at the Knowledge Bank to provide notification that it has been approved for upload.
- The student will then use the approved PDF and submit that to the Knowledge Bank (see the instructions at http://go.osu.edu/kb-nursing-instructions).
- The Knowledge Bank staff does a final review of submissions before they are “live” in the Knowledge Bank. Students will receive an email from the Knowledge Bank with the permanent stable URL to their project when their submission is approved and available via the Knowledge Bank.
- The students are permitted to request an “embargo” of 1, 3, or 5 years. This allows them to delay public access to their project, during which time the public can see that it exists, but access to full text will not be available. When the embargo period is over, the Knowledge Bank staff update the item to make it publicly accessible.
- Posters and PowerPoint presentations do not get submitted to the Knowledge Bank. Only the final written document should be sent to the Knowledge Bank.
