Full Text Articles should be uploaded through BRIAN to comply with Bournemouth University Academic Publications Policy on Open Access.
As most publishers allow the Accepted Version of journal articles to be made available this is the version we recommend authors deposit via BRIAN. The Accepted Version is the author-created final version that incorporates referee comments and is accepted for publication. It should not have the publisher’s typesetting or logo applied.
Supplementary files of various file formats can also be deposited as files or as zipped folders. A listing of publishers, their journals and policy on archiving in BURO is provided by theSHERPA/RoMEO project; see http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php. BURO staff will liaise with the copyright holder regarding the inclusion of full text for other publication types.
Depositing files step by step
When in BRIAN, click on ‘my publications’ to see your full list of publications. Each record will show a summary screen and below the title of each record you will see a set of six tabs. Click on the ‘Full text’ tab (the second tab from the right).
Click on the link ‘Manage full text’ where it says ‘Manage full text for this publication’. The File management box will open. Browse and select the file(s) you wish to deposit. Click on Upload’. As indicated above, please include your final version in the first instance.
Books are rarely allowed, although some publishers will permit the use of a sample chapter. BURO staff can liaise with the publishers on your behalf to check permissions.
Click on ‘Grant’ to confirm you are depositing the file(s) for possible dissemination via BURO. This process does not transfer copyright to BURO. When you have deposited the files you wish to transfer to BURO click on ‘Home’ in the top left hand corner of the screen to return to your BRIAN profile home page.
