Adding a full text document and checking its copyright status
Full-text documents can be added to bibliographic records in Pure which can be used to provide Open Access to the documents. To add a full-text document, click on the publication to open the template with the bibliographic details. Scroll down to the section "Electronic version(s), and related files and links" and then after clicking this, click on "Upload an electronic version"
A new window will open in which the document can be navigated to on the computer and selected. The version of the document needs to be specified as does the public access to the file (this setting only affects the full-text document itself and not the visibility of the bibliographic record associated with it).
Pure will often provide information about which version of the article can be made publicly available online and if an embargo period needs to be applied.
Full text text files can be set to "Closed" if authors are not sure of which version can be added or if an embargo period applies. The OA Team in the Library will check the files of records being added and will be able to advise on the OA and copyright position. The OA Team will also then set any embargoes so that the file is only open after publication or any embargo period.
Any questions about the copyright and OA status of publications and which versions can be made available via OA, can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or please consult the Open Access pages.
