When uploading an accepted manuscript to a repository, authors should include the following acknowledgment as well as a link to the version of record. This will guarantee that the version of record is readily available to those accessing the article from public repositories, and means that the article is more likely to be cited correctly.

Author’s Original Version
The author’s original version is defined here as the un-refereed author version of an article that is considered by the author to be of sufficient quality to be submitted for formal peer review by a second party. The author accepts full responsibility for the article, which may have a version number or date stamp and the content and layout is set out by the author.
EJIL does not permit authors to retain the original version of their accepted articles on publicly-available websites. Any original versions 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.
