If you publish in our scientific journals, the versions of the article can be used in different ways.
*Other guidelines apply for the following periodicals, which for the most part publish commissioned or other types of edited articles: NOVAcura, PADUA, Psychiatrische Pflege.
In general, articles published in Hogrefe’s scientific journals* may be shared by faculty for teaching and training purposes at any time, as long as reasonable measures are taken to not allow open sharing of the final published version of record on the internet.
The corresponding author of each published article will receive free online access to the published version of record when the article is first released online. The author may download the PDF of the published version of record. It is provided for the author’s personal use, including for sharing with coauthors.
A typical journal article may be available in various versions: (1) the manuscript as originally submitted to the journal and before peer review (submitted manuscript); (2) the manuscript as accepted by the journal after peer review (accepted manuscript); (3) the final, approved and published version (version of record). Different guidelines apply to each version:
Submitted manuscript (before peer review)
The manuscript of the article as originally submitted to the journal may be shared at any time, including under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) License or other Creative Commons license. It should be labelled with the date the manuscript was prepared and should also include a statement that the manuscript in this form has not yet been accepted for publication.
Accepted manuscript (after peer review)
The manuscript version accepted by the journal for publication may be shared and posted at any time after acceptance, including under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) License or other Creative Commons license, and including on authors’ personal websites, in their own institutional repositories, in not-for-profit subject-based repositories, in scholarly communication networks (SCNs) such as ResearchGate or Academia.edu, in reference managers such as Mendeley, as part of a grant application or submission of a thesis or doctorate, and with individuals upon request for their personal scientific or other non-commercial research uses.
The accepted manuscript version that is shared or posted should include a link using the article’s digital object identifier (DOI) to the authoritative version of record that has been or will be released on the publisher’s platform, as well as a statement that “This version of the article may not completely replicate the final authoritative version published in [journal title] at [DOI]. It is not the version of record and is therefore not suitable for citation.”
Final published article (version of record)
The final version of the article as published in the journal (version of record) may be shared at any time with individuals upon request for their personal scientific or other non-commercial research uses and as part of a grant application or submission of a thesis or doctorate. The final version of the article as published in the journal (version of record) may not, however, be posted on websites or in repositories or shared in scholarly communication networks (SCNs) except with the express written permission of the publisher. Changing or modifying the article, and reproducing, distributing, or licensing the article in whole or part for commercial purposes, are not permitted.
Hogrefe provides an optional open access publication model for authors whose institutions or funding bodies mandate or who desire immediate gold open access publication.
