A repository is a digital platform used to host and preserve scholarly outputs. If you’re based at a research institution, you’re probably required to place a version of your article in their repository.
If your article has been published gold open access in a Taylor & Francis journal you can deposit a PDF of the VOR in the repository as soon as it’s published.
If your article hasn’t been published gold open access then you’ll need to archive a copy of either the AOM or the AM. For most Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals there is an embargo period during which the AM should be a closed deposit. The length of each journal’s embargo is available on the OA Cost Finder. The embargo period begins when the final version of your article is published online.
Which license should I use to share the AM in a repository?
We suggest that you apply a license to this version to make it clear to others how they can reuse your work. We recommend the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial (CC BY-NC) license, which allows anyone to reuse your work, provided they credit you and don’t reuse your work for commercial reasons.
As an alternative, if you have concerns around adaptation of your work, you can apply a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives (CC BY-NC-ND) license. This means that you have to be credited, any reuse of the work has to be on non-commercial terms, and the work has to be used in full.
You should include a statement when posting your AM:

Your AM might be posted on our platform before the VOR is published, as part of the Accepted Manuscript Online (AMO) service. In this case, this AMO version will have the same license terms as your VOR.
