How to self-archive?

University of Jyväskylä requires self-archiving of all research publications to university's repository JYX. For researchers, self-archiving is easy and simple.

Please submit your research article to Converis with this form and attach the file (publisher's PDF and/or accepted manuscript).

  • Please retain accepted manuscript of your article if it is not published open access. If necessary, request it to yourself from the corresponding author of the article.
  • OSC verifies the self-archiving policy of the publisher, checks the archived version and possible embargo and deposits the article in JYX.
  • It is also recommended to self-archive older publications to JYX. You can send them to Upon the request, OSC will send a list of your publications missing in JYX.
  • Please remind also that self-archiving usually meets the research funders' open access requirements for publications.


Which version of the publication can be self-archived?

If the article is published open access and the license allows it, the final published version will be deposited to JYX.

If the article is published behind the paywall, it is usually allowed to self-archive Accepted Manuscript (= AM = final draft = post-print = post-review) which means the version after peer-review changes but before copy editing and formatting by the publisher.
