Making Articles Publicly Accessible After Publication
Green Open Access
AIP Publishing also supports green Open Access, which allows you to self-archive a version of your article in an institutional or subject repository, such as arXiv, immediately upon acceptance.
AIP Publishing, through participation in the CHORUS initiative, makes publicly available the Accepted Manuscript version of an article in response to government or funder requirements. Accepted Manuscripts are licensed under AIP Publishing’s License to Publish Agreement, unless otherwise mandated and indicated in the article.
Scholarly Collaboration Networks (SCNs)
Scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs) are rapidly growing as an avenue to share scholarly information. We understand that researchers are constantly looking for ways to make meaningful professional connections with the ability share their research and data. AIP Publishing supports the voluntary principles for article sharing on these websites and allows accepted versions of the manuscript to be posted and distributed immediately.
