What green open access options does IOP offer?

IOP Publishing allows authors of articles published on a subscription basis to post the accepted manuscript version (the version after peer review but before copy-editing and typesetting), including citation details for the published version of the article, on their personal website immediately or on an institutional or subject repository 12 months after publication of the final article.

For UK authors to comply with the requirements of the HEFCE post-2014 REF policy, IOP Publishing allows closed deposits on repositories within certain specified time-frames. To see full information on this, please refer to our Author Rights Policy.

If you are publishing the results of research funded by a US government agency or if you are employed by the US government then please see our guide to US public access.

IOP deposits papers in PubMed Central automatically for authors funded by the NIH, unless an author requests otherwise, after the 12-month embargo period.

IOP Publishing supports the sharing of preprints. View our preprint policy.
