Publisher Policies on Self-archiving 

The database Sherpa/Romeo provides detailed information on the publisher policies regarding self-archiving of previously published articles in journals.

For PhD theses, the TU Berlin has compiled a list of publisher policies of well-known publishers for the re-use of published articles in theses. Additionally, the website of the TU Berlin collects information on whether the theses may be published before the article is officially published in the journal.
We recommend that you check the terms and conditions for any changes directly on the publisher's website. You should also check your publishing contract in case it differs from the standard contract.
