Researchers can often openly share and/or retain rights to their preprints or postprints (also called the author's final manuscript or author's accepted manuscript). Some researchers post these versions online in repositories (known as green Open Access). PubMed Central, for example, allows researchers to post and search for author's final manuscripts.
SHERPA/RoMEO will walk researchers through their rights to archive specific versions of research.
JScholarship is designed to gather, distribute, and preserve digital materials related to the Johns Hopkins research and instructional mission. Content is deposited directly by Johns Hopkins faculty and staff, and includes born-digital or digitized research and instructional materials.
