How do I know if I am allowed to post my articles in CommonKnowledge?

Published articles and other materials under copyright may require permissions from the copyright holder(s) before posting, depending on the terms of your publisher's copyright transfer agreement.  There are two ways to determine what articles (or what versions) you may submit:

    1.  Read the copyright transfer agreement you signed when submitting your article.

    2.  See if your journal/publisher's policy is listed on the SHERPA/RoMEO site. 

If permissions are necessary, you do NOT need to secure these permissions prior to submitting work to CommonKnowledge.  The repository manager will evaluate your submission and coordinate any necessary permission requests with you, along with letting you know if any further information/material is needed from you before making your work publicly accessible.
