Preprint and PDF Policy
Journal of Appalachian Studies
Preprints and Postprints
Contributors may post preprints (contributions not yet accepted for publication) and postprints (contributions accepted for publication—after revisions have been completed) to personal websites until the final PDF versions are available from press.
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 prior to 2014:
Published as "[insert complete title here]." Journal of Appalachian Studies [insert volume number] ([insert issue number]). © [year] by the Appalachian Studies Association.
For contributions published beginning in 2014:
Published as "[insert complete title here]." Journal of Appalachian Studies [insert volume number] ([insert issue number]). © [year] by the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois.
PDFs will also be issued to contributors for the following purposes:
- promotion and tenure
- special workshops conducted by the author
- other requests evaluated on an individual basis
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.
