Liberal copyright policy

Elsevier is sensitive to authors' needs. Scientists publishing in Elsevier journals have wide rights to use their works to support their research and teaching.

A permanent place in a secure archive

Permanent archiving of electronic information and assured access to those archives are essential in scholarly communication. Elsevier is committed to maintaining an active electronic archive of its journals and to providing access to that archive to all subscribers. Independent archives are being established with key libraries internationally, which will provide enduring access in the highly unlikely event of Elsevier no longer being able to fulfil this role.
