Authors maintain copyright of works published in the institutional repository, so works may be submitted for publication elsewhere. Some journals require that manuscripts not be previously published. Use this site, SHERPA RoMEO, to find a summary of permissions that are normally given as part of each publisher's copyright transfer agreement. SHERPA RoMEO is an online resource that aggregates and analyses publisher open access policies from around the world and provides summaries of self-archiving permissions and conditions of rights given to authors on a journal-by-journal basis.
Most journal publishers do not consider posting a work in a repository like the SUNY Cobleskill Institutional Repository to constitute a previous publication. However, if you have concerns about a specific journal, please contact Peter Barvoets.
If the work involves ongoing faculty research that is not appropriate to share publicly, please contact us about embargo and other options to restrict access to content.
It is possible to limit access of any submissions to the SUNY Cobleskill community.
