Website Navigation for Screen Readers

Will posting articles on my personal web page meet the policy’s conditions?

Posting to a personal web page does not fulfill the policy requirements. Personal web pages don’t offer the same functions and services as journals and repositories. These important functions and services include:

  • A permanent identifier (URI or DOI)
  • Search engine optimization
  • A workflow for long-term preservation
  • A workflow for copyright and other inquiries

Personal web pages, even those provided by your academic department, will disappear when you leave the university, retire, or die. We want to ensure that your research is available beyond that point.
