Deposit your published articles in the Atrium


Open Access is a mechanism to promote the availability of peer-reviewed scholarly research. As an author you may publish in a peer-reviewed subscription-based journal and then make the article Open Access by depositing a copy of the post-print into an institutional repository such as The Atrium. Most journal publishers allow this. BY adding your articles to the Atrium, you add an additional venue for your research articles, complementing rather than replacing your current publishing practices. This means you expand your readership and will likely  be cited more often.

The majority of publishers follow the GREEN Road to Open Access: they allow the deposit of peer-reviewed research articles into an Open Access repository such as The Atrium. It costs nothing, except a few minutes of time.
Some publishers that allow the published PDF version to be deposited in an institutional repository include:
  • American Meteorological Society
  • American Society of Plant Biologists
  • Anthropological Society of Oxford
  • American Institute of Physics
  • American Mathematical Society
  • Berkeley Electronic Press
  • Biomed Central
  • Cambridge University Press
  • Canadian Psychological Association
  • Chemistry Central
  • Cornell University, The Johnson School
  • Duke University Press
  • Frontiers Research Foundation
  • Hindawi Publishing Corporation
  • Institute of Mathematical Statistics
  • Modern Language Association (upon request)
  • National Institute for Material Science
  • Public Library of Science
  • Springer Open
  • Taylor and Francis Open 
  • University of California Press
 It costs nothing, except a few minutes of time.
