File Type and Size

 

CUNY Academic Works can accept files of any type (PDFs, powerpoints, image files, etc.) and of any sizeOf course, it’s best for each file to be in the appropriate format for its content:

  • If the work is an article, chapter, or other textual work, submit it as a PDF, Rich Text Format (.rtf), or Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file. CUNY Academic Works will convert .rtf, .doc, and .docx files to PDF and also create CUNY-branded cover pages for these works.
  • If the work is a slideshow, data set, or other kind of non-textual work, submit the file in whatever format makes the most sense for the work (e.g., PowerPoint, Excel, CSV).

CUNY Academic Works does not stream audio or video content, but can embed streaming content from sites like YouTube and Vimeo so users can preview the content before downloading the file.
