All accepted manuscripts of journal articles & conference papers (in proceedings with an ISSN) accepted for publication post 1st April 2016 must be deposited by the author into a repository (within 90 days of publication*).
Accepted Manuscript (which version of my work is this?)
To aid citing of your work and to abide with publisher copyright policies, include a link to the published version e.g.:
Acceptance Date (more information)
Embargo Release Date if required (how do I find this out?)
* From April 2018 HEFCE require deposit within 90 days of acceptance for publication. Planning is underway to develop the infrastructure to support deposit upon acceptance including keeping a watching brief on policy and sector developments.
^Where embargos are stipulated by publishers they should be applied but not exceed 12 months for Panels A&B and 24 months for Panels C&D. Limited exceptions are possible e.g. where a journal's embargo period exceeds the HEFCE stated maxima and was still the most appropriate publication for the output. Exceptions should still be deposited. Publisher copyright should be adhered to.
