Open access may also be ensured by self-archiving the publisher’s version or accepted manuscript* in a registered institutional, discipline-specific, or open-discipline repository (see OpenDOAR). Archiving in the FWF E-Book Library is possible (see Metadata form). Self-archiving must be completed with a Creative Commons license after no more than 12 months of embargo.
FWF funding is not available for self-archiving and time-delayed open access.
* The Open Access version should (where possible) include all text, images, figures, tables, indexes, and other supporting content. If this is not possible for legal reasons, illustrations, third-party materials, etc. may be redacted and references provided. The archived accepted manuscript must include a note that this is not the final version published by the publisher.
