Versions of your publication

Which version goes in Tuwhera?
  • Ideally, the publisher’s version (often prohibited by publishers)
  • Second choice is the post-print (frequently permitted by publishers)
  • If neither of above versions is permitted by the publisher’s archiving policy, we will use the pre-print
  • A relatively small number of publishers will not permit the deposit of any version in a repository
Publishers' archiving policies on the RoMEO Colours website may help you identify which version of your publication can be uploaded into Scholarly Commons.
Whichever version is used in Tuwhera Open Research Outputs, the item record will include a link to the final published version.
