Final Draft for Secondary Publication (Green Open Access)

What is a "Final Draft"?

For secondary publication in the sense of Open Access you may not use the original publisher generated PDF. In most cases only a "Final Draft" is allowed.

“Final Draft“ defines the status of your article after the peer review. In other words: we need a version which has the same content like the publishers’ PDF, but differs in its appearance (for example your final Word-document).

If you want to publish your article on our open access repository, please send a final draft of your article to: openaccess(at) and ensure growing citation by broader perception of your article.
