Publishers' Copyright Policies

SHERPA/RoMEO is a database that contains the copyright policies for specific journals and publishers.  Search the database to see the default copyright policy for the publisher or journal you are submitting your article to. 

Note: There may be a delay before the information is updated in Sherpa/RoMEO so you may also want to check the website of the individual journal or publisher to ensure you have the most current version of their copyright policy and author's rights information.
