In self-publishing philosophy, authors provide access to their works by depositing them into an OA archive. Before being "published", documents may be reviewed and edited within a process where authors, reviewers and library administrators interact. At the start of this process, authors must upload a copy of their work. It is very important that the self-publishing service allows authors to easily deposit their documents however complex they are. This paper describes the OpenDLib service for self-publishing. OpenDLib is a Digital Library Service System that allows the publishing, maintenance and dissemination of documents that conform to the DoMDL document model to represent multi-edition, structured, multimedia documents that can be disseminated in multiple manifestation formats. After briefly presenting the DoMDL Model, the functions for submitting documents by the authors and for managing the publishing process by reviewers (if requested) and administrators are described with some details.
