EJIL - Author Self-Archiving Policy

  • Authors may upload their accepted manuscript PDF ("a post-print*") to institutional and/or centrally organized repositories (including SSRN), but must stipulate that public availability be delayed until 12 months after first online publication in the journal.

Postprint use of Oxford Journals content

  • When uploading an accepted manuscript to a repository, authors should include a credit line (see last bullet point below) and a link to the final published version of the article. This will guarantee that the definitive version is readily available to those accessing your article from public repositories, and means that your article is more likely to be cited correctly.
  • A PDF of the final published version of the article as it appears in the journal following copyediting and proof correction may not be deposited by authors in institutional repositories.
  • Authors should include the following credit line when depositing their accepted manuscripts.

This is a pre-copy-editing, author-produced PDF of an article accepted for publication in the European Journal of International Law following peer review. The definitive publisher-authenticated version [insert complete citation information here] is available online at: xxxxxxx [insert URL that the author will receive upon publication here].

* Definition of a post-print:
A post-print is the final draft author manuscript, as accepted for publication, including modifications based on referees' suggestions but before it has undergone copyediting and proof correction.

Preprint use of Oxford Journals content

EJIL does not permit authors to retain preprints of their accepted articles on publicly-available websites. Any preprints should be removed by the author upon publication of their article in EJIL.

Once the article is published, a link could be provided to the final authoritative version on the Oxford Journals Web site.
