Notes on uploading the full text
The Deposit Agreement requires you to confirm that you have the right to deposit the item. You should bear in mind:
Repository staff will check the copyright position, using the SHERPA RoMEO database in the case of journal articles, and will contact you if there are difficulties.
If the item has been published, please upload the "author's final" version. This is the version most often stipulated by publishers for use in repositories. It is the author-created version sent to the publisher post-refereeing. The publisher's PDF is unlikely to be acceptable.
If possible, please upload the item in its original format (e.g. Word).
Repository staff will convert the item to PDF/A (a version of PDF suitable for long-term archiving). The original format will also be retained.
If the original format is LaTeX, please convert to PDF/A yourself (it is best done on your own computer) and provide both versions.
