"Open Access" Archiving Permissions

Authors with open access articles can archive pre-print and post-print versions of a work; they can even archive the publisher's version/PDF. Unlike some open access models, Common Ground's Hybrid Open Access has no embargo period preventing an author from archiving. Find out more about our archiving policies for Open Access and Traditional publication using the link below. Our traditional publications are listed as SHERPA/RoMEO Yellow.
