Self-archiving, or parallel publishing, (Green OA) refers to depositing a version of a publication, according to the publisher’s permission, in a subject-specific or institutional open access repository.
Self-archiving is a part of the process of collecting data on publications at Turku UAS.
Author, proceed as follows:
Turku UAS library verfies and checks self-archiving policies for you, deposits the publication version in Turku UAS open access repository Theseus, as well as adds the persistent URL of the self-archived version to the publication information in Research.fi, the national service collecting and sharing information on research conducted in Finland.

However, the publisher may require that the self-archived copy is openly accessible only after an embargo period. The embargo period starts from the publication date (either the electronic or the printed publication) depending on which date is earlier. The embargo period is usually 6 – 36 months.
When signing a publishing agreement, make sure that you withhold the right to self-archive your article in the Turku UAS OA repository. The publishing agreement should enable either immediate open access subject to a APC charge, or self-archiving either immediately or after an embargo period. Check the funding agreement requirements on open access for articles written as a part of project activities.
In case an author has signed a publishing agreement, which transfers all rights to the publisher, self-archiving may be forbidden.
In most cases, you find publishers´ and journals´ copyright and self-archiving policies in the SHERPA/RoMEO service.
In scientific publications, an affiliation is mentioned with the author’s name. Affiliation refers to the author’s home organization, higher education institution or research institution, as a member of which the publication has been created.

N.B. Affiliation can contain more than one organization. For example, if your employer is Turku UAS and you participate in a project coordinated by another organization, both organizations can be listed as affiliations with your name in a publication.
