Dear <name of coauthor>,
I’m writing to let you know that I plan to deposit a copy of the peer-reviewed manuscript of our article,
<name of article> in SOAR/RUcore, the Rutgers University open access repository. As coauthors, we each may exercise rights to deposit the article in an open access repository, and you may also be planning to deposit a version of the same peer-reviewed manuscript in another repository.
The manuscript version deposited in SOAR/RUcore will be an open access version whereas the article as published in <journal> may not be. The SOAR/RUcore version will cite the published article and, if possible, also link to it. Once the article is deposited, you’ll be able to see article-level usage statistics by visiting http://soar.rutgers.edu.
If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me.
With best regards,
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
