When entering into a publishing contract it is important to know what rights you retain in terms of self-archiving your work in an institutional repository, like PRISM or on your personal website.
This information can be found:
- In your publishing contract
- On publisher web sites in a copyright, author rights or open access section
- In SHERPA/RoMEO, a database of publisher self-archiving policies
Make sure to look for which version you are able to post for self-archiving:
|The version submitted to the journal, prior to peer review.|
Author accepted manuscript:
The version that has been accepted for publication and which typically includes author-incorporated changes suggested during submission, peer review, and editor-author communications. They do not include other publisher value-added contributions such as copy-editing or formatting.
Publisher's version /
|The version that appears on the journal website that includes peer review, copy-editing and layout.|
