Book Self-Archiving and Institutional Repository Policy

Author Use of Post-Print University of Texas Press Book Content

Authors retain the non-exclusive right to distribute copies of one post-print chapter of their monograph or 2–3 pages of an excerpt of a chapter from an edited book by means of their institutional repository or personal website, but only 12 months after the print publication date. (Post-print is defined as the final manuscript draft as accepted for publication following peer review, but before the copyediting and proofreading correction process.)

When uploading accepted post-print material, the following credit line should be used:

“This is a pre-copyedited version of a chapter accepted for publication in WORK TITLE following peer review. The definitive publisher-authenticated version is available through the University of Texas Press.”

Author Use of Published University of Texas Press Content

The University of Texas Press is not an open access publisher and does not allow authors to post published books on their personal website or institutional repository.

We publish most of our books simultaneously in digital and print to strive to make them as widely available as possible through digital vendors and via online searches.

In certain cases, we may allow authors to post sample sections of published books or chapters on their personal website or institutional repository to promote their work, but only on approval by the University of Texas Press.
