Hi Clare,

Here at the NRC Publications Archive, the IR for the National Research Council of Canada (Federal Government Agency), we do accept publications (with full text) that our researchers have done prior to their employment at NRC. However, those publications get tagged during the submission process as "non-NRC", therefore are not displayed online. This was devised, since researchers do not have their publications listed on their personal pages, as a way to hold all their scientific output. The only time they can be retrieved is when internal reports are created for promotion purposes, but are still tagged as "Non-NRC" publications.

Hi all

I have a quick question about your repository policy.

Do you accept the full-text files of publications produced when your researcher was employed at a different institution prior to moving to your institution?

We're currently updating our repository policy as a result of purchasing a Research Information System and we're interested in current practice in the community on this question.

Many thanks
