Open Access and Posting Articles Online

Authors and grant awarding bodies increasingly demand the right to publish open-access versions of papers that appear in scholarly journals, either freely or on payment of a one-off charge.

RoMEO Logo

The White Horse Press works with SHERPA/RoMEO, a database of publishers’ Open Access policies that is used worldwide by repository managers, administrators and academics to check what publishers do and do not allow to be archived.

GREEN OPEN ACCESS

Since 2007, White Horse Press has offered ‘green’ open access to all journal articles. We allow authors to post their own electronic versions of their papers as pre-prints (ie pre-refereeing) or post-prints (ie final draft post-refereeing) subject to the following conditions:

GREEN OPEN ACCESS CHECKLIST

  • Publisher’s version/PDF cannot be used
  • Archive must be on a non-profit server
  • Publisher copyright must be acknowledged
  • Published source must be acknowledged1
  • Link to publisher version must be included2

1 Preprint articles should give the journal name and the date on which the article was accepted for publication. Postprints sent to non-profit institutional or thematic repositories should include a credit line of the form ‘This is a pre-copy-editing, author-produced PDF of an article accepted ¬†following peer review for publication in¬†[journal name, volume number, page range].’

2 E.g., ‘The definitive publisher-authenticated version is available online, doi: [insert doi from page 1 of the published article]’.

GOLD OPEN ACCESS

If your funding body requires permanent public open access to the publisher’s online version of your article, we can arrange this for a fee per article of £1500, payable on publication. To ensure fair peer-review, requests for open access will only be dealt with after the article has been finally accepted. Gold Open Access articles are published under the Creative Commons CC-BY licence. Please contact us by email or at the address below for further details.
