Notes about copyright policies
I have tried to conform to the following copyright policies in all cases.
Note that some publishers have a concept of an updated
preprint. This is a preprint that has been modified,
after the referee procedure, to be functionally equivalent to the
published version; however, it cannot be a downloaded pdf
or other version that looks like a snapshot of the published
The APS journals freely allow authors to post electronic versions of
their manuscripts on their personal web home pages, as can be seen from
Copyright Agreement for the APS journals.
The AIP journals allow posting by the author of a copy of the
journal article, provided that some copyright notices are
AIP Copyright Policy
Web Posting Policy.
Elsevier Science Direct
These journals allow posting of a preprint, including an updated preprint,
provided a link to the journal is also included. However,
they do not allow private posting of the journal copy itself.
The Wiley Interscience journals appear to have a slightly more
restrictive policy than the Elsevier ones: an updated preprint
cannot be posted, but an earlier preprint may be posted. (I didn't
find a global statement of policy, but here, for example, are the
Conditions of Publication for Physica Status Solidi.)
Taylor and Francis
This is mainly Ferroelectrics in the present context; this journal
was previously published by Gordon and Breach. The copyright policy
appears to be the same as for Wiley Interscience, except that an
updated preprint may be posted after an embargo of 18 months.
