In all cases, the article on a website or in the repository must have a link to its abstract page on the Inter-Research website, and cite the article doi.

 

Summary of permitted self-archiving

 

 

Definitions:

  • 'Gold' Open Access = article published by publisher with free availability to all users; available from IR as Open Access (or formerly Free Access).
  • 'Green' Open Access = Author self-archiving in Open-Access institutional repository or on their personal or institutional website, in parallel to publication by the publisher.
  • Postprint = the author-generated version of the manuscript accepted for publication and sent to the publisher for production (i.e. includes the corrections made during peer review, but excludes corrections and enhancements made by the publisher's sub-editors, copy-editors, graphic designers, and web-services).
  • Preprint = the manuscript version initially submitted to the journal for review (before peer-review).
  • Publisher's PDF = final professionally typeset article published by the publisher.
