Deposit /Repository policy

Authors can share their preprint anywhere at any time.Sharing preprints will not count as prior publication (see 'Prior submission and redundant publication' for more information). If accepted for publication, we would advise authors to link the preprint to their formal publication via its Digital Object Identifier (DOI). Authors can update their preprints at the EES page on RePEc with their accepted manuscript.

Authors are free to share ‘Author’s Accepted Manuscript’ on any institutional or subject depository. 

Authors can enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgement of its initial publication in this journal.

Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) after its publication in EES with an acknowledgement of its initial publication in this journal.

The licensing agreement requires all authors to give EES the permission to publish and archive their work electronically. EES does not ask authors to transfer any copyrights to the journal. The author(s) retain all copyrights of their articles. However, authors only grant the publisher non-exclusive publishing rights to publish the articles. Please note that EES publishes only original materials, that is, works that have not been previously published elsewhere.

All authors and users are free to use, reproduce, or distribute the works published in EES in any way they prefer on the condition that the reproduced/ redistributed material clearly acknowledges that it was originally published in EES with all relevant publication details. When sharing works originally published in EES on other platforms, please use the final version made publicly available on EES's website. We also ask authors to avoid from engaging in new contractual or licensing agreements that will influence EES's existing rights.

If you are unsure whether the above statement allows you to reproduce or redistribute a work originally published in EES in your particular case, feel free to send an email to the managing editor.
