Public Repositories

Author wishes to include own article in an institutional repository or place own article on a departmental/personal website

The author's institute can offer access to the authors’ final, accepted manuscript version of an article from its repository website. Likewise, authors are allowed to post their final, accepted manuscript version on their own personal or laboratory website. In both cases an embargo period of 12 months after online publication in the journal applies. Unless expressly permitted, authors may not post the publisher's version on their own website. However, it is possible to place a link to the published article PDF for purchase.

This permission is restricted to non-commercial institutions only; for the conditions regarding article placement on corporate websites, please contact Holzforschung.editorial@degruyter.com.

Inclusion of articles in a general repository

General repositories may include the abstract of the article in the repository and place a link to the publisher's version of the article for purchase.

NIH-funded authors: WdG acknowledges that the author of an NIH-funded article retains the right to provide a copy of the final, accepted manuscript document to NIH for archiving in PubMed Central 12 months after online publication in the journal. Note that only the accepted author’s version of the manuscript, not the PDF file of the published article, may be used for NIH archiving.

Institutional repository wishes to include articles which do not exist in electronic format

WdG allows institutional repositories to include a scanned version of their authors' journal articles as published in printed form. We request a link be placed to the journal’s homepage (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/hfsg).

Author wishes to place a link to the abstract of an article

Authors may place as many links to the abstract as desired.

Author wishes to send electronic offprints (PDFs) to colleagues

Authors will receive an offprint of the publisher’s article version as PDF-document. Authors may send up to 30 copies of the PDF document as electronic offprint to colleagues. Any other form of distribution of the electronic offprint file requires written permission from the publisher.
