Authors may submit final PDF versions of their contributions to an online institutional repository once those versions become available. Submissions must include one of the following notations.

For contributions published beginning in 2014:

PDFs of book and media reviews may be issued to publishers/producers of reviewed material for posting on their organizational website one year after the review was published. Review PDFs must include a link directing users to the journal’s UIP sales page.

All PDFs will include a statement of copyright and a provision that the articles or reviews will not be photocopied, distributed, or used for purposes other than the terms agreed to by the journal.
