Depositing the correct version of a book or book chapter to espace

The right for an author to self-archive a copy of a book or book chapter is determined by the terms of the publishing agreement. 

Unfortunately there is no searchable database of publisher policies summarising the self-archiving rights for books or book chapters.

Researchers will need to refer to their publishing agreement for specific author-self archiving rights associated with the accepted version. Alternatively an author may contact their publisher for written permission to deposit the accepted version (author’s final manuscript) to espace.

Published versions of chapters or whole books are seldom permitted to be made openly available in espace unless published Open Access.
