Preprint use of IJOCTA content
A preprint is defined here as the un-refereed author version of an article. Authors may want to retain the right to make a preprint version of the article available on their own personal website and/or that of their employer and/or in free public servers of preprints and/or articles in their subject area, provided that where possible they acknowledge that the article has been accepted for publication as follows:
"This article has been accepted for publication in An International Journal of Optimization and Control: Theories & Applications (IJOCTA): [year], [DOI Number]. Some rights reserved."
Once the article has been published, where possible, the preprint notice should be amended to:
"This is an un-refereed author version of an article published in [include the complete citation information for the final version of the Article as published in the print edition of the Journal]."
Postprint use of IJOCTA content
A postprint is defined here as the final draft author manuscript, as accepted for publication by the journal, including modifications based on referees’ suggestions before it has undergone copyediting and proof correction. Authors may upload their accepted postprint manuscript PDF to an institutional and/or centrally organized repository. When uploading an accepted manuscript to a repository, authors should include a credit line (see below) and a link to the final published version of the article. This will guarantee that the definitive version is readily available to those accessing your article from public repositories, and means that your article is more likely to be cited correctly:
"This is a pre-copyedited, author-produced PDF of an article accepted for publication in An International Journal of Optimization and Control: Theories & Applications (IJOCTA) following peer review. The definitive publisher-authenticated version [insert complete citation information here] is available online at: [insert URL that the author will receive upon publication here]."
