Self-Archiving Policy

The sections below contain information about Intellect’s self-archiving policies and terms of use for different article versions. These policies apply to Intellect’s standard Green Open Access articles. For full details about articles and books published under Intellect’s Gold Open Access model, including the licences that we support and the terms of use that they allow, please go to our Open Access page.


Preprint version

We define the preprint version as the submitted or ongoing version of an article, which has not been peer-reviewed, officially accepted into a journal, or had any value added to it by Intellect (such as copy editing, typesetting, metadata formatting, etc.). Posting preprints can be a useful way to share preliminary research, and to encourage feedback from other researchers in the field before a formal peer review.

Authors may place their preprint manuscript on a non-commercial institutional repository, subject repository, archive, not-for-profit preprint repository or personal website at any time. This is not subject to an embargo.

Once accepted for publication in an Intellect journal, authors should add the following note to the front page:

This is a pre-peer review preprint of an article that has been accepted for publication in [name of journal, volume, issue, year].

Upon publication, authors should link the preprint to the final published article (version of record) by adding the following note to the first page:

This is a pre-peer review preprint © [name of author, year]. The definitive, peer reviewed and edited version of this article is published in [name of journal, volume, issue, pages, year, DOI link].

Preprints should not be enhanced or formatted in any way to appear like the accepted manuscript or final published version. Authors are not permitted to replace the preprint with the accepted manuscript or the final published version.

We ask that authors do not actively share their preprint articles with commercial users or the media as this research has not been through the formal editorial and peer-review processes. Authors and readers must clearly acknowledge when sharing or citing the preprint that this version of the research has not been peer reviewed.

This policy applies to both Green Open Access and Gold Open Access articles. Go to our Open Access page for full details about articles and books published under Intellect’s Gold Open Access model, including the licences that we support and the terms of use that they allow.


Accepted manuscript during embargo

Start date

The start date for this policy is the date that the article is accepted for publication into an Intellect journal, after peer review.

Green Open Access (standard)

We define the accepted manuscript (or post-print file) as the version of the paper after peer review, with revisions having been made, but before copy-editing and typesetting have taken place.

Authors are encouraged to put bibliographic details of their article in a non-commercial institutional repository or subject repository within 3 months of acceptance.

Authors may deposit their accepted manuscript in a non-commercial, institutional or subject repository upon publication, but access to this must be restricted until the end of the embargo period (12 months after the final version has been published and distributed). Any exceptions must be agreed in writing with Intellect. The author is not permitted to post, print, or otherwise distribute the journal’s version of record/final published version at any time without permission.

Upon publication, authors should link the accepted manuscript to the final published article (version of record) by adding the following note to the first page:

© [name of author, year]. The definitive, peer reviewed and edited version of this article is published in [name of journal, volume, issue, pages, year, DOI link].

Authors must abide by the terms of the licence form, which must be signed and submitted when the paper is accepted for publication. This form covers terms of use of the accepted manuscript and the final published version/version of record, as well as details of our privacy policy and GDPR, republication, university repositories and image use. Any uses not covered in the licence form require permission from Intellect.

Users

All versions of articles published through our subscription model are fully protected by copyright.

Third-party users may view the bibliographic details of the article once deposited, but access to the post-print file must be restricted until after the embargo period has ended. 

During the embargo period, users may not view, print, make quotations, copy or download the accepted manuscript for any purpose.

Users may not make the final published version publicly available, make unauthorised copies, share, post or publish it in print or digital form at any time. Users may not modify the content, remove any copyright notices or author information, or create derivative works.

Gold Open Access

The policy above does not apply to Gold Open Access articles. Go to our Open Access page for full details about articles and books published under Intellect’s Gold Open Access model, including the licences that we support and the terms of use that they allow.

Action

Intellect reserves the right to issue take-down notices to anyone or any site that infringes this policy and to take other action as appropriate, including termination of access to Intellect content.


Accepted manuscript post-embargo

Start date

The start date for this policy is twelve months after the article’s publication date. 

Green Open Access (standard)

We define the accepted manuscript (or post-print file) as the version of the paper after peer review, with revisions having been made, but before copy-editing and typesetting have taken place.

After the embargo period of 12 months following publication and distribution of the final version, the accepted manuscript can be made publicly visible in a non-commercial, institutional or subject repository.

Authors should link the accepted manuscript to the final published article (version of record) by adding the following note to the first page:

© [name of author, year]. The definitive, peer reviewed and edited version of this article is published in [name of journal, volume, issue, pages, year, DOI link].

Authors are only permitted to consider republishing any part of the accepted contribution after the embargo period. Authors will notify Intellect of their intention to republish any part of the accepted manuscript, and we ask that the Intellect journal and article DOI is noted in any re-publication as the first site of publication. The author is not permitted to post, print, or otherwise distribute the journal’s version of record/final published version at any time without permission.

Authors must abide by the terms of the licence form, which must be signed and submitted when the paper is accepted for publication. This form covers terms of use of the accepted manuscript and the final published version/version of record, as well as details of our privacy policy and GDPR, republication, university repositories and image use. Any uses not covered in the licence form require permission from Intellect.

The author is not permitted to post, print, or otherwise distribute the journal’s version of record/final published version at any time without permission.

Photocopying for internal or personal use is allowed for users registered with the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) in the United Kingdom, or the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) in the United States. The base fee must be paid directly to the relevant organization. The proportion of the subscribed product that can be copy/pasted or printed depends on the user’s agreement with the organization.

Intermediate copies of Intellect works may be made by an individual with a print disability, or an authorised body/institution acting on behalf of that individual. An accessible copy must only change the work to the extent necessary to convert it to an accessible format.

Intellect does not require or store personal data related to the individual’s accessibility requirements, though this may be required by those making or authorising the accessible copy. The accessible copy is solely for the personal, non-commercial use by an individual with a disability and must not be copied, shared or distributed for any other purpose. This is restricted to those with existing lawful possession or lawful use of the Journal.
