Use this template if you have no Accepted Manuscript (AM) and would like to deposit the publisher-branded PDF (for a book chapter). Replace the <bolded> text with your relevant information.
I am the author of Chapter <number > (“<chapter title>”) in the book <Book title>, published by <Publisher name>, <year>.
I am contacting you to obtain your permission to archive the publisher’s version (Version of Record) of this single chapter in our institutional repository, RUcore (http://rucore.libraries.rutgers.edu). I would like my article to appear along with my other works in the repository and this is the only version I have available to me. It would be made freely and publicly available online, indexed by Internet search engines, and linked to your webpage, where the book is available for purchase <url if applicable>.
The repository will cite the original publication in full and comply with any requirements you might have as to copyright acknowledgement, etc.
Thank you for your consideration.
With best regards,
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
