  • MBZUAI authors should deposit articles for which they are the sole rights holders, or for which they have obtained permission from all co-authors/publishers to submit.
  • Authors remain responsible for the status of the materials deposited.
  • If required to assign all or a part of their copyright to the publisher, MBZUAI authors are encouraged to request an addendum to allow for self-archiving. The SPARC Author Addendum to Publication Agreement is recommended to manage this accommodation.
