Self Archiving


What is self-archiving?

This definition from the E-Prints FAQ pages at http://www.eprints.org/openaccess/self-faq/#23.Version

To self-archive is to deposit a digital document in a publicly accessible website, preferably an OAI-compliant Eprint Archive. Depositing involves a simple web interface where the depositer copy/pastes in the "metadata"  (date, author-name, title, journal-name, etc.) and then attaches the full-text document.  Self-archiving takes only about 10 minutes for the first paper and even less time for all subsequent papers. Some institutions even offer a proxy self-archiving service, to do the keystrokes on behalf of their researchers. Software is also being developed to allow documents to be self-archived in bulk, rather than just one by one.
