In accordance with the terms of its Transfer of Copyright Agreement,* the American Institute of Physics (AIP) grants to the author(s) of papers submitted to or published in one of the AIP journals or AIP Conference Proceedings the right to post and update the article on the Internet with the following specifications.

*AIP Advances authors may make their work available according to the terms of the Creative Commons 3.0 Unported License.

On the authors' and employers' webpages:

  • There are no format restrictions; files prepared and/or formatted by AIP or its vendors (e.g., the PDF, PostScript, or HTML article files published in the online journals and proceedings) may be used for this purpose. If a fee is charged for any use, AIP permission must be obtained.
  • An appropriate copyright notice must be included along with the full citation for the published paper and a Web link to AIP's official online version of the abstract.

On U.S. NIH's PubMed Central repository:

  • In compliance with the Public Access Policy of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the American Institute of Physics will automatically deposit, with the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed Central (PMC) online repository, any journal article published after 6 April 2008 that reports research funded, at least in part, by the NIH. AIP will deposit the article with PMC in final, published form, along with its associated metadata, upon publication, and will provide authors with the PMCID number once it has been assigned. Please note, however, that the full text of the article will not become available on PMC until one year after publication.
  • For articles for which the author has paid AIP's fees for open access publication (either via the AIP Author Select® program or for an AIP open-access journal), AIP will notify the repository that they may post the article upon publication by AIP and its transmission by AIP to the repository.
  • Authors need only to sign the AIP Transfer of Copyright Agreement without any amendments or substitutions in order to be fully compliant with institutional repository requirements, such as those imposed by Harvard, MIT, and other universities. Our agreement respects the spirit of the initiative toward self-archiving of material and supports the basic premise that authors have freedom to reuse their own work for scholarly, noncommercial purposes.
  • Please contact AIP's Office of Rights & Permissions (rights@aip.org) with any questions.

Creating links

To create a link to your article* in an AIP journal or proceedings, you need to know the CrossRef digital object identifier (doi). You can find the doi on the article’s abstract page.

The general format for the URL is:

To link to G. A. Gibson et al., Appl. Phys. Lett. 86, 051902 (2005).

The URL is:

The HTML for the citation is:
G. A. Gibson <em>et al.</em>, Appl. Phys. Lett. <strong>86</ strong>, 051902 (2005)
<a href=”http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.1856690”>http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.1856690</a>

The entire citation would appear as:
G. A. Gibson et al., Appl. Phys. Lett. 86, 051902 (2005) http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.1856690

*Article links go to the online abstract, which contains links to all available full-text formats.
