What do I need to do?
- When you have an article or conference paper accepted for publication make sure you deposit it in the research information system straight away. It must be the peer reviewed version with the text basically as it will appear in the journal but without the publisher formatting (unless you have paid an article processing charge to the publisher).
- You will need to check that your publisher allows you to do this and whether they require an embargo period. Sherpa Romeo allows you to do this.
