Journal Author

The following conditions apply to authors of articles published in multi-authored works (journals, anthologies and edited volumes):

De Gruyter Open allows authors the use of the final published version of an article (publisher PDF) for self-archiving (author’s personal website) and/or archiving in an institutional repository (on a non-profit server) immediately after publication. The published source must be acknowledged and a link to the journal home page or articles’ DOI must be set.

Authors MAY NOT self-archive their articles in public and/or commercial subject based repositories (e.g. PubMed Central). Pursuant to NIH mandate, De Gruyter Open will post to PubMed Central the final published version of contributions authored by NIH grant-holders upon online publication.
