1. Every publication (article in a journal) by a ULg member must now be posted in the Institutional
Repository ("La Digitheque"). By publication it is meant the author's version of the article after peer
review and acceptance for publication by the editor (either in a print journal or/and in an
electronic version, either in a Gold or Green Open access journal or in a non-OA journal).

2. Access to the IR is closed by default, unless opening up is authorised by the publisher. If the
access is closed, it remains available to the author(s) only.

3. Metadata of the article are immediately available and they constitute a showcase of the
University productivity. The accepted version deposited in the IR can be delivered via the e-mail e-
print request button of the IR.

4. As soon as conditions are fulfilled, the author will open access to his accepted version.

The mandate will start as soon as the technical set up will be ready.
