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:

  1. You as the author retain copyright ownership OR
  2. 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
  3. 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: Another useful tool is a site called SHERPA-RoMEO: You can search by title, publisher, etc. and view policies on copyright, open access, self-archiving, publisher conditions, etc.
