Elsevier

  • author can archive pre-print
  • author can archive post-print
  • cannot use publisher PDF
  • must link to journal site or DOI
  • published source must be acknowledged

Taylor & Francis

  • author can archive post-print
  • cannot use publisher PDF
  • must be a non-profit server
  • must link to publisher version
  • 12 month embargo for STM journals
  • 18 month embargo for SSH journals

 

SHERPA/RoMEO provides information about publisher policies, as well as a list of publishers that allow authors to use the publisher PDF.
