List of academic publishers by preprint policy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of publishers of academic journals by their submission policies regarding the use of preprints prior to publication (example list).

Publishers' policies on self-archiving (including of preprint versions) can also be found at SHERPA/RoMEO.

Policies by publisher[edit]

Submission of preprints is accepted by all open access journals. Over the last decade, they have been joined by most subscription journals, however publisher policies are often vague or ill-defined.[1]

In general, most publishers that permit preprints require that:

  • the authors disclose the existence of the preprint at submission (e.g. in the cover letter)
  • once an article is published, the preprint should link to the published version (typically via DOI)
  • the preprint should not have been formally peer reviewed

Publishers may place additional restrictions (e.g. specifying non-commercial servers or preferred licenses). Most publishers have a unified policy across all of their journals, however some journals list exceptions in their own policies.
