UWSpace: Preprint policy

When Posting Preprints to UWSpace

If you foresee publishing a substantially similar version of your work in the future, keep in mind that some publishers may interpret your UWSpace deposit as a form of 'publishing' on the web. This is publisher and discipline-specific. We recommend you check with the publisher directly.

It is your responsibility to notify the UWSpace team If your publisher:

  • Requires that the preprint be updated with the accepted post-print or final version of the article.
  • Requires that a special statement be added to the record indicating the place of publication.
  • Requires that the preprint be removed.

We are happy to help with these requests.

Contact us with the required publisher details to have these records updated or removed.
