Journal article versions

Self-taught course


Where and how can you share your articles? Each article goes through different versions, from submitted manuscript, through accepted manuscript, proof, and finally version of record. Often the text is very similar, but subtle differences mean that one version can be legally shared and another cannot. In this course, you will learn how to identify article versions and apply the correct terminology.

Target audience
  • Researchers
  • Research support staff

To provide users with practical tips for:

  • correctly describing journal article versions,
  • recognising journal articles published open access,
  • understanding the importance of knowing where, when and which version of a journal article can be shared in order to comply with funders' and publishers' policies
  • avoiding article-sharing pitfalls.

The course is available on Moodle for all University of Cambridge staff and students. To take the course, please follow the link below:
