If your work is accepted for publication, you will be asked to sign IBFD’s standard author agreement. Contributors to edited volumes will be asked to sign a contributor agreement.

In these agreements we ask that you transfer the copyright of your work to IBFD, so we can offer unlimited access to our extensive network of readers via our platforms and distribution channels. You retain all proprietary rights other than copyright (such as patent and trademark rights) to your work and any process or procedure described therein.

By signing our standard agreement, you acknowledge that permission for publication has been obtained from all authors and, if applicable, from the responsible authorities at the institute where the work or research was carried out.

This policy describes the ways in which you are permitted to self-archive versions of your work in various online environments.

IBFD distinguishes three versions for the purpose of this policy:

Author’s original version or “preprint”

A preprint is an author’s own write-up of research results and analysis that has been submitted for publication but has not yet had any value added to it by the publisher, such as review, formatting, copy-editing or technical enhancement. All drafts of a work prior to the accepted version are considered preprints.

Accepted manuscript

An accepted manuscript is the author’s version of the manuscript that has been accepted for publication and may include any author-incorporated changes suggested through the processes of submission, review and editor-author communications. Accepted manuscripts do not include other value-adding contributions of the publisher, such as copy-editing, formatting, technical enhancements and, if relevant, pagination.

Published work

A published work is the definitive record of published research that appears or will appear in a publication or collection and incorporates all value-adding publisher activities, including copy-editing, formatting and, if relevant, pagination.
