What is meant by the term “open access?”
- Access is immediate, free, and unrestricted in most cases. We can implement a temporary embargo on a case by case basis.
What about copyright for previously published articles?
One of the following will need to apply before you can deposit the work into the repository:
- You as the author retain copyright ownership OR
- You have transferred your copyright ownership to the publisher; however, you have retained the right to deposit a version of your work into a digital repository OR
- Permission to deposit has subsequently been granted by the publisher.
What if I intend to base a future article on a poster I might submit to the repository? Will the publishers consider that a previous publication?
It depends on the publisher, although whether a previously published work has been peer-reviewed seems to be the most important factor for many publishers.
F1000Posters has compiled a list of publishers divided out according to their policies on this matter: http://f1000.com/posters/journalresponses. Another useful tool is a site called SHERPA-RoMEO: http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/ You can search by title, publisher, etc. and view policies on copyright, open access, self-archiving, publisher conditions, etc.
How do I submit my work?
