Self-archiving policy

The Ulutas Medical Journal is a green publisher, as we allow self-archiving, but most importantly we are fully transparent about your rights.

Publishing in a subscription-based journal

By signing the Copyright Transfer Statement you still retain substantial rights, such as self-archiving:

"Authors may self-archive the author’s accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/ she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgment is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website.  The link must be provided by inserting the DOI number of the article in the following sentence: “The final publication is available at Ulutas MED j Web via http://dx.doi.org/10.5455/umj."

The final published version (in PDF or HTML/XML format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgment needs to be given to the final publication and a link should be inserted to the published article on ULUTAS’s website by inserting the DOI number of the article in the following sentence:“The final publication is available at Ulutas MED J - Web via http://dx.doi.org/10.5455/umj”.

When publishing an article in a subscription journal without open access, authors sign the Copyright Transfer Statement (CTS), which also details ULUTAS’s self-archiving policy.


Publishing Open Access

If you publish your article open access, the final published version can be archived in institutional or funder repositories and made publicly accessible immediately.
