Re-use guidelines for open access content
When posting, distributing or reusing Open Access articles, the journal should be clearly attributed as the original place of publication and correct citation details should be given. Authors should also deposit the URL/DOI of their published article in any repository, in addition to the Version ofRecord.When making their article available according to the terms of their Open Access licence, we strongly encourage authors to deposit the Version of Record. This will guarantee that the definitive version is readily available to those accessing your article from such repositories and means that your article ismore likely to be cited correctly. As there are many ways you can share the different versions of your article as it moves through the stages towards publication a summary is provided as follows.
Author’s Original Manuscript (AOM)
You can share your AOM as much as you like, including via social media, on a scholarly collaboration network, your own personal website, or on a preprint server intended for non-commercial use (for example arXiv, bioRxiv, SocArXiv, etc.). Posting on a preprint server is not considered to be duplicate publication. If you do decide to post your AOM anywhere, we ask that, upon acceptance, you acknowledge that the article has been accepted for publication as follows:
“This article has been accepted for publication in Journal of Women Medical and Dental College”
Accepted manuscript (AM)
You can post your Accepted Manuscript (AM) at any point after acceptance (this includes posting to Facebook, Google groups, and LinkedIn, plus linking from Twitter). To encourage citation of your work, we recommend that you insert a link from your posted AM to the published article with the following text, including the DOI:
“This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published in Journal of Women Medical and
Dental College on [date of publication], [Article DOI].”
Version of Record (VOR)
On publication you can link to the VOR using the DOI or you can post the article PDF on website
and repositories according to CC-By license guidelines.
Connecting the different versions of your article
By the time your article is published, you may have already shared your AOM and AM in various
places. It is a good idea to link these to the VOR after publication, by adding some text such as:
“This is an [Accepted Manuscript / Author’s Original Manuscript] of an article published in Journal
of Women Medical and Dental College on [date of publication], available at [Article DOI].”
