Extension IT develops
new tool for approval of Extension publications

Extension IT has developed a new web-based tool to submit requests for approval of new or revised numbered Extension publications. We are pleased to announce that Extension IT has developed a new web-based tool to submit requests for approval of new or revised numbered Extension publications. This tool will function as a replacement for the EP-3 form and allow authors to upload their manuscripts directly to the approval request system. The tool will automatically route all necessary information and files through the proper channels for approval, providing notifications and allowing authors to check on the status of their request during the process.   Once a publication is approved, the CALS Communications editor will be notified, and the editing and publishing process can begin. Follow the steps below to access the tool and submit new or revised publications for approval: 1. Go to http://xrdb.ces.ncsu.edu/. 2. Log in using your Unity ID and password. 3. From the gray menu just beneath the Extension logo at the top of the page, select EP3 . 4. To determine whether a revisions to an existing EP3 publication must go through the approval process, click on the ? button in the upper right section. 5. To start a new approval request, click on the green Request approval for new numbered (EP3) publication button in the upper right section. If you have questions about or have difficulty accessing the Publication Approval (EP3) Tool, contact Elizabeth Martin, Extension IT web resource specialist, at elizabeth_martin@ncsu.edu. If you have questions about the numbered Extension publication approval process, contact Debra Ireland, CALS Communications editor, at debra_ireland@ncsu.edu.
