Interested in providing the ExpressO service to your faculty and students? Want to know what ExpressO can offer your institution? See our FAQs below to learn more about our institutional plans, managing your school’s account, and more!

Institutional Accounts

Do we already have an account?

Check out our ExpressO Institutional Accounts list to see if your school already has an account. If your institution does not have an account, please see our Pricing page for account plans. If you have any questions about your account or need additional information, please contact us at expresso-support@bepress.com.

What type of accounts do you offer?

Both the ExpressO Institutional Account for faculty and the ExpressO Institutional Student Account offer two plan options: the Complete Prepaid Plan, and the Open Account Plan. See our Pricing page for plan details and sign up forms.

We don't have a student account, can we just add them the account we use now?

Students are not allowed on the faculty account. If you’re interested in promoting student works, the ExpressO Institutional Student Account. We generally recommend starting with the Open Account Plan if you expect only a few students to use the service. If usage increases, you can always switch to the Complete Prepaid Plan at any time.

Managing Accounts

How do we add users to our account?

Users are authenticated one of two ways: authorized user list or domain. If your institutional account authenticates users by authorized user list, you must provide us with a list of approved users so we can upload to your account (in MS Excel, with email addresses, first name and last name in three separate columns). You can also request a copy of your current list to review and update at anytime. If your account authenticates by domain, e.g., law.university.edu, users must make their submission using an address with this handle.

Can a faculty assistant submit on behalf of a professor?

Our administrator feature allows assistants to log in under their own account to submit on behalf of a professor. On Step 2, the Article Information screen, under the Author(s) section, simply click on the (+) sign and add the name and email address of the professor and then click on the Remove Author icon (person with a red X) next to their name to show only the professor’s information. This will ensure that the professor is listed correctly as the author of the article, as well as in all correspondence after the submission takes place between the author and the selected law reviews.

Are any usage reports available?

We are more than happy to provide our institutional clients an ExpressO Deliveries Report upon request. Generated by any date range, the report includes author name, submission date and time, and the number of deliveries made. Please send your report requests to expresso-support@bepress.com.
