Self-archiving Policy

Self-archiving Policy: Institutional Repository

Authors publishing with the journals and magazines published by the AesthetixMS are permitted to self-archive the Preprint Version of the article at any time, and may self-archive the accepted Peer-reviewed Version and the Postprint Version after an embargo period on the condition that the request will be made by an appropriate authority of the institution. We will not allow archiving of peer reviewed and final published versions in any third party repository. However, the Abstract and the Metadata can be shared anywhere.

Preprint Version

The submitted version of an article is the author’s version that has not been peer-reviewed, nor has any change been made to it.
Author/s are allowed to upload or post their preprint version on:

  • a personal website
  • the author’s institutional repository or any website
  • any non-commercial preprint repository

There is no embargo period for self-archiving the submitted version. Author/s, however, need to include an acknowledgement of acceptance for publication on the first page:

“This is the pre-peer reviewed version of the article: [FULL CITATION: Article name, author’s name, name of the journal, Vol. No…, Year, link to the article, link to the journal www.rupkatha.com], which has been published after peer review in final version at [Link to final article]. “

Authors are not allowed to update or replace the preprint version with the accepted one or the published one.

Author/s can remove their preprint versions at any time without our consent from any place.

Accepted (peer-reviewed) Version

The accepted version of an article is the version that includes all the changes made after the peer preview. This is distinct from the published version in that it does not include the formatting, citation, linkings and embedded metadata.
Author/s can self-archive the accepted version after an embargo period of one month from the date of publication of the final version.

Authors can post their accepted version in

  • the institutional repository only through proper channel.

The version posted must include the following notice on the first page:

“This is the accepted version of the article: [FULL CITATION: Article name, author’s name, name of the journal, Vol. No…, Year, link to the article, link to the journal www.rupkatha.com], which has been published after peer review in final version at [Link to final article]. “
Author/s can remove their accepted version at any time without our consent from any place.

Final Published Version

The final published version is that version which has been posted in the journal with all the changes after peer review, formatting, linkings and embedded metadata.

Author/s can self-archive the final published version after an embargo period of one month from the date of publication of the final version.

Authors can post their final published version in

  • the institutional repository only through proper channel.

The version posted must include the following notice on the first page:
“This is the final published version of the article: [FULL CITATION: Article name, author’s name, name of the journal, Vol. No…, Year, link to the article, link to the journal www.rupkatha.com], which has been published after peer review in final version at [Link to final article]. “
Author/s can remove the self-archived final versions at any time without our consent from any place.
