|Guidance:||The policies of the copyright holder take priority over the policies of any other organisations involved in the publication of a journal. Where there are two or more copyright holders, we try to display the more liberal policy. Firstly we select by RoMEO colour in the order Green, Blue, Yellow, and White. If necessary, we then use a weighted algorithm that tries to identify the policy that permits archiving of the most recent version of an article.|
