Self-Archiving


Wiley Self-Archiving Policy


Authors of articles published in Wiley journals are permitted to self-archive the submitted (preprint) version of the article immediately on acceptance, and may self-archive the accepted (peer-reviewed) version after an embargo period.

The submitted version of an article is the author's version that has not been peer-reviewed, nor had any value added to it by Wiley (such as formatting or copy editing).

The submitted version may be placed on:

• the author's personal website
• the author's company/institutional repository or archive
• not for profit subject-based preprint servers or repositories

Self-archiving of the submitted version is not subject to an embargo period. The submitted version may be self-archived immediately on acceptance of the article. The version posted must acknowledge acceptance for publication and, following the final publication, include the following notice on the first page:

"This is the pre-peer reviewed version of the following article: [FULL CITE], which has been published in final form at [Link to final article using the DOI]. This article may be used for non-commercial purposes in accordance with Wiley Terms and Conditions for Self-Archiving."

The version posted may not be updated or replaced with the accepted version (except as provided below) or the final published version (the Version of Record).

There is no obligation upon authors to remove preprints posted to not for profit preprint servers prior to submission.

The accepted version of an article is the version that incorporates all amendments made during the peer review process, but prior to the final published version (the Version of Record, which includes; copy and stylistic edits, online and print formatting, citation and other linking, deposit in abstracting and indexing services, and the addition of bibliographic and other material).

Self-archiving of the accepted version is subject to an embargo period of 12-24 months. The embargo period is 12 months for scientific, technical, and medical (STM) journals and 24 months for social science and humanities (SSH) journals following publication of the final article.

The accepted version may be placed on:

• the author's personal website
• the author's company/institutional repository or archive
• certain not for profit subject-based repositories such as PubMed Central as listed below

Articles may be deposited into repositories on acceptance, but access to the article is subject to the embargo period.

The version posted must include the following notice on the first page:

"This is the peer reviewed version of the following article: [FULL CITE], which has been published in final form at [Link to final article using the DOI]. This article may be used for non-commercial purposes in accordance with Wiley Terms and Conditions for Self-Archiving."

The version posted may not be updated or replaced with the final published version (the Version of Record). Authors may transmit, print and share copies of the accepted version with colleagues, provided that there is no systematic distribution, e.g. a posting on a listserve, network or automated delivery.

There is no obligation upon authors to remove preprints posted to not for profit preprint servers prior to submission.

The self-archived submitted and accepted versions may be used on the following terms:

Non-Commercial Use

For non-commercial and non-promotional research and private study purposes individual users may view, print, download and copy self-archived articles, as well as text and data mine the content under the following conditions:

• The authors' moral rights are not compromised. These rights include the right of "paternity" (the right for the author to be identified as such, also known as "attribution") and "integrity" (the right for the author not to have the work altered in such a way that the author's reputation or integrity may be damaged). All reuse must be fully attributed.
• Where content in the article is identified as belonging to a third party, it is the obligation of the user to ensure that any reuse complies with the copyright policies of the owner of that content.
• Self-archived content may not be re-published verbatim in whole or in part, whether or not for commercial purposes, in print or online. This restriction does not apply to use of quotations with appropriate citation, or text and data mining provided that the mining output is restricted to short excerpts of text and data and excludes images (unless further consent is obtained from Wiley).

Commercial "for-profit" Use

Use of self-archived articles for commercial, promotional, or marketing purposes requires further explicit permission from Wiley (corporatesales@wiley.com) and will be subject to a fee. Commercial purposes include:

Copying or downloading of articles, or sale, loan, transfer or licensing:

• Copying, downloading or posting by a site or service that incorporates advertising with such content
• The inclusion or incorporation of article content in other works or services (other than normal quotations with an appropriate citation) that is then available for sale or licensing, for a fee (for example an anthology, a compilation produced for marketing purposes, inclusion in a sales pack)
• Use of article content (other than normal quotations with appropriate citation) by for-profit organizations for promotional purposes
• Use for the purposes of monetary reward by means of sale, resale, license, loan, transfer or other form of commercial exploitation such as marketing products
• Print and digital reprints of articles can be purchased from corporatesales@wiley.com

Disclaimer

Self-archived articles posted to repositories or websites are without warranty from Wiley of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. To the fullest extent permitted by law Wiley disclaims all liability for any loss or damage arising out of, or in connection, with the use of or inability to use the content.

Some funders, such as NIH and the Research Councils UK (RCUK) have specific requirements for depositing the accepted author manuscript in a repository after an embargo period. Separate agreements with these organizations exist and the details are set out on our Funder Policies page. Authors funded by these organizations should follow the self-archiving terms of these separate agreements.

Authors may self-archive accepted articles on any of the following not for profit subject-based repositories:

• AgEcon
• arXiv
• PhilPapers
• PubMed Central
• RePEc
• Social Science Research Network

The above sections detail Wiley's general policy for self-archiving. Wiley's society partners may set policies independently and authors should refer to the copyright policy on the individual journal pages. Certain funding organizations also have separate agreements and authors should refer to our Funder Policies page for details of these agreements.

Please contact the Managing Editor of the publishing journal for any further questions about Wiley’s self-archiving policy.
