Self Archiving – Green Open Access
Maastricht University is an advocate of ‘Green Open Access’ and adopted a green open access policy on 28 February 2019.
Regardless of where a scholar publishes a manuscript, the corresponding author has to deposit the Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM) of peer-reviewd articles.
Submit your article
Use this form to submit the Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM, final author’s version) of your peer-reviewed article (PDF) in Pure. The library will take care of the registration in Pure, including uploading the PDF.
UM Library mediated deposit service
The University Library takes care of the workflows and the legal formalities and provides all necessary support:
- adding the correct metadata to make the output findable
- adding the submitted publication to the Institutional Repository of Maastricht University (Pure) to make the output accessible
- checking the submitted output format to make the output interoperable
- taking care of embargo periods and copyright notices to make the output reusable.
All research outputs are registered in Pure and appear in Maastricht University Research Publications. This ensures the accessibility of the research output for everyone in the world, in some cases after an embargo period.
In most cases publishers require an embargo period before you can self-archive your publications.
You can submit your Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM) as soon as possible after acceptation and the library will make sure that the publisher’s requirements are observed. Your AAM will be made publicly accessible in combination with the information about and link to the published article after the embargo period has ended.
By default, we provide a self-archived author version with a CC-BY-NC-ND license , unless the submitting author indicates otherwise.
