  • If you see that a full-text has already been uploaded, you do not need to upload a new one.
  • To continue you must accept the terms of use of BORA.
  • Check the button of the article version you want to upload. In general you should upload the author's accepted manuscript (postprint). The published version must only be uploaded if the article is published open access with a Creative Commons license, or you know that the publisher permits self-archiving of the published version. For more information on article versions, see: https://www.uib.no/en/ub/106619/copyright-own-scientific-work#article-versions

  • Press "Finish" to return to the main page.
