Registration allows Sigma Repository users to submit items (after appropriate authorization has been assigned to a user account) and subscribe to specific repository collections (i.e., you will be able to sign up to receive email updates whenever a new item is added to a specified collection of interest).
Registration is not necessary to view/search/browse items in the repository.
Registration does not allow users to view embargoed files.
Please pay special attention to the final step, Step 6 – authorization to submit to any collection in the repository requires an email to repository staff to request submission approval. Submission authorization is not automatic with registration. You will receive an email from repository staff confirming your authorization to submit to the collection(s) that best fit your topic area(s).
