Q: What version of the full text should I upload to the Research Repository?

A: The version we are most frequently permitted to archive is the author’s accepted manuscript (also called AAM, accepted version, or post-print).

Dateofacceptance

This is the version of the text that is accepted by the publisher. For journal articles this is after the article has gone through peer review, and any changes resulting from peer review have been incorporated, but before any publisher formatting is added. This means we cannot use proofs, as they feature publisher formatting (of which the publisher holds the copyright.)

This is the version required to comply with the HEFCE policy, and is the version that most journals allow us to archive anyway. For book chapters this is also the version we are most likely to be able to archive, so if in doubt – upload the accepted version. The repository team will check the publisher requirements and get in touch if a different version is required.
