Green-open-access/self-archiving policy

This policy applies to authors publishing in IUCr Journals who do not opt for the `gold' full open-access option.

Under the IUCr's green-open-access policy, authors sign a licence to publish, which allows articles published in Acta Crystallographica Section F to be shared and reused as outlined in our author rights page.

The policy allows the author accepted manuscript or an authorised electronic reprint to be posted in a wide range of places including:

  • Your personal or your employer's website
  • Your institutional repository
  • Not-for-profit subject repositories in your subject area

When you post your article the site should provide:

  • Full attribution to your article
  • A permanent link from the posting to the final published article on the IUCr website

IUCr's policies are designed to be compliant with Funder requirements. When you post the author accepted manuscript, a CC-BY licence may be applied, as required by some funders. Note also that if authors wish to apply a CC-BY licence to their author accepted manuscript, the IUCr will not reroute the article to a different journal that requires the payment of an APC.
