Publication Approval Tool

Extension Specialists should use this application to electronically request to publish a manuscript as an official numbered (EP3) publication.

Check the Extension Publications Author Guidelines.

Requests are submitted for approval of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Program Leader. All requests are copied to the Department Head and Department Extension Leader. Once approved, manuscripts are transferred to CALS Communication editors for final editing and publication. You may return to this application to check on the status of your publication. This process may also be necessary for revisions of existing numbered publications. Use the flow chart below to determine whether you should submit a new EP3 form for a revision. If a new form is not necessary, contact CALS Communication editor, Debra Ireland ( for assistance with minor revisions.
