Request to publisher to deposit Version of Record (article)

Use this template if you have no Accepted Manuscript (AM) and would like to deposit the publisher-branded PDF (for an article).  Replace the <bolded> text with your relevant information.

Dear <Publisher>:

I am writing to ask permission to archive the publisher’s version (Version of Record) of my article “<article title>” in my university's institutional repository.  The article was originally published in <Journal Title Vol(issue), year>. 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.  The repository will cite the original publication and link to the published version on the first page of the archived work and also from its accompanying metadata description. I realize this may be an exception to your policies, and hope that you will grant permission in this case.

Thank you for your consideration.

With best regards,

<Your name>
