The policy currently covers scholarly and creative work including, but not limited to, peer reviewed articles, book chapters, monographs or co-authored books, conference papers, technical reports, musical scores, performances, exhibitions and catalogs, video, and other digital media.
My scholarly work takes a variety of forms. How do I decide what to deposit?
This is an individual decision, but you might think in terms of major creative works that would be included in a dossier for reappointment, tenure or promotion. A variety of digital formats can be used. For example, the catalog from a juried exhibition could be deposited, or images of the works. A musical composition could be deposited as a score, or digital recording of a performance, or both.
I have just had a journal article accepted for publication. What do I submit to the repository?
Many publishers allow authors to archive either the original pre-print of a journal article that was submitted for peer review and possible revisions or the version that is accepted for publication, the Author Accepted Manuscript” (AAM).
My publisher will allow me to make my pre-pub manuscript available after an embargo period of one year. Do I have to wait to deposit it?
We prefer that you submit your manuscript when the embargo period has ended.
