I am employee of the World Bank / Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). What do I need to do to comply with my employer’s Open Access policy?

If you are an employee of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development/The World Bank or the FAO, your work is governed by the “Publication Framework Agreement (PFA)” which the World Bank / FAO and Taylor & Francis have agreed. The PFA allows World Bank / FAO employees who are journal article authors to comply with the World Bank’s / FAO’s Open Access policy.

This allows for the posting of an Author’s Original Manuscript (the version submitted for peer review) in the Bank’s / FAO’s repository for public access at any time. It also allows the posting of the Author’s Accepted Manuscript (the version revised after peer review, but prior to Taylor & Francis’s copy-editing, etc.) in the Bank’s / FAO’s repository after an embargo of 18 months, with a link to the Taylor & Francis Version of Scholarly Record. The World Bank / FAO asserts and retains copyright in each article.
