Overview of embargo time limits for peer-reviewed journal titles

Many publishers include a mandatory embargo time limit in their copyright conditions. An article may therefore often be made available Open Access in the TU/e repository only after a period of time. Such copyright conditions vary per journal.


The IEC will check the publisher’s copyright conditions for the author. Once you have registered and uploaded your article, your publication will automatically be made available through Open Access as soon as it is allowed by the publisher. For all other types of publications, including conference contributions, you will be responsible for configuring the Open Access conditions and any embargo period..

Do you want to check the embargo time limit for any specific journal for yourself? The IEC has compiled a list for you. It includes all journal titles in which TU/e authors have published since 2012 and for which embargo time limits are known to be in place
