Key Points from the SLAS Copyright Transfer Agreements (and RoMEO Green Status)

 
  • At any time, authors may distribute on a not-for-profit basis, photocopies of the final/published Contribution for teaching purposes or to research colleagues on an individual basis.
  • At any time, authors may circulate or post to any repository or website, the version of the Contribution that the authors submitted to the Journal (i.e. the version before peer-review) or an abstract of the Contribution.
  • No sooner than 12 months after initial/online publication, authors may post on any non-commercial repository or website the version of the Contribution that was accepted for publication.
  • No sooner than 12 months after initial/online publication, authors may re-publish the whole or any part of the Contribution in a printed work written, edited or compiled by the author, provided that citation is provided for the original publication by SLAS, and the later work is not simply a re-publication of the Contribution.
  • Authors retain copyright of their work, including supplemental materials. The agreement grants non-exclusive rights to SLAS for use of a Contribution and its supplemental materials. Re-publication of supplemental materials is not restricted.
  • Authors may do whatever they wish with the original version of the Contribution that was submitted to the journal for review (version 1).
  • After the Contribution has successfully completed the peer review and revision process and has been accepted for publication, authors may post the accepted version of the Contribution (version 2) to their own personal websites, their department websites or their institution’s repository without any restrictions.
  • Authors may not post the accepted version of the Contribution (version 2) in any repository other than those listed above (i.e. repositories of other institutions or subject repositories) until 12 months after final/print publication of the Contribution in the journal.
  • Authors may use the final/published Contribution (version 3) for their own teaching needs or to supply on an individual basis to research colleagues, provided that such supply is not for commercial purposes.
  • Authors may use the final/published Contribution (version 3) in a book they write or edit any time after publication in the journal.
  • Authors may not post the final/published Contribution (version 3) on a website or in a repository without permission from SAGE Publications on behalf of SLAS.
  • When re-using a Contribution, authors are asked to provide citation/publication information. When posting a Contribution online, authors are asked to provide a link to the appropriate DOI (digital object identifier) for the Contribution published online at SLAS Technology Online (http://jla.sagepub.com) or SLAS Discovery Online (http://jbx.sagepub.com).
