Open Access Archiving

also called “Green” Open Access

means that the published article or the final peer-reviewed manuscript (accepted version) is archived (deposited) by the author or a representative in an online repository before, alongside or after its publication. Self-archiving regulations differ between publisher’s. Normally authors have to check their publishing agreement to find out whether self-archiving is allowed. You can use KAUST Repository for that.
