Finding Author Manuscripts

Page history last edited by sk60@rice.edu 3 years, 2 months ago

This guide is intended to turn the too often unsuccessful hunt for Author Accepted Manuscripts (AAMs) into a simple set of instructions that should always bring results.  AAMs are often requested for deposit in the Rice Digital Scholarship Archive (per the University's Open Access Policy).

 

The guide, which includes information for most major journals, provide simple to follow instructions for authors to obtain an AAM from their Journal Submission System (where the AAM is stored during the publishing process).

 

This guide has been adapted from the Open Access Button's Direct2AAM guide, which is published under a Creative Commons CC-0 License.

The instructions below contain general instructions for authors to download a copy of their accepted manuscript. Instructions and steps may vary from journal to journal, depending on the system they use. However, most systems use a similar design. The AAM can usually be downloaded from submission systems until 2-5 years after publication. 

 

Instructions for Authors

  1. Find your journal submission page. Log in.
  2. Navigate to the paper you’d like to archive. Most journals divide your submissions in different categories, such as "new submissions" or "submitted manuscripts", "revisions" and "manuscripts with a decision" or "post decision manuscripts". Category names may vary from journal to journal.
  3. Choose a version you can archive and download it. You usually don’t want the final version in a list, as that is a publisher’s version (distinctive as it’ll have the publisher logo on it) which isn’t possible to archive. Before you archive it, you might read a quick explainer on article versions.
