The repository may be a local institutional repository and/or a subject repository; Authors should deposit post-prints (or publishers version if permitted) plus metadata of articles accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals and international conference proceedings; Deposit should be made upon acceptance by the journal/conference. Repositories should release the metadata immediately, with access restrictions to full text article to be applied as required.
