The “Repository Policy” refers to the policy of the authors of journal articles when they make them available on the internet, such as in institutional repositories. We encourage authors to post their articles in institutional repositories or on their websites  final formatted PDF version of article from the journal after publication without embargo. These practices benefit authors with productive exchanges as well as earlier and greater citation of published work. The SNSSPU decided on the following policy:
