Public Access Policy

Broad access to the research literature is important to American Psychiatric Publishing (APP). Twelve months after publication, APP grants the public free full-text access to all content on the Web site of each journal. The rights of our authors are also important to APP, which acknowledges authors’ right to deposit their peer-reviewed Accepted Manuscript (i.e., the version incorporating all modifications from the peer review process but before copyediting, graphic design, formatting, and other work to produce the final published article is performed) in public or institutional repositories for public release as mandated by their funding agency. These repositories will make the deposited manuscript freely available to the public 12 months after publication in an APP journal.

At the time of submission, authors are asked to check one of the following options to provide guidance to APP if the manuscript is accepted for publication:

  1. This article stems from research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is thereby subject to the NIH Revised Policy on Enhancing Public Access to Archived Publications Resulting from NIH-Funded Research (Public Access Policy). Checking this option means that should the manuscript be accepted for publication APP is authorized to submit on the author's behalf the Accepted Manuscript to the National Institutes of Health Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) system.
  2. This article stems from research not funded by NIH but my funder stipulates that the journal must allow deposit of the Accepted Manuscript (the version incorporating all modifications from the peer review process but before copyediting, graphic design, formatting, and other work to produce the final published article is performed) in other repositories without restrictions on re-use and within a defined period. Checking this option means that should the manuscript be accepted for publication the author is responsible for self-archiving the Accepted Manuscript into a funder-specified repository for public viewing after an embargo period mutually agreed upon by all parties (a space is then provided to indicate the specific funding agency).         
  3. There are no stipulations set forth regarding public access to the article. Checking this option means 12 months after publication, the full text of the official version of the article will be freely available to the public on the journal’s Web site.
