Author Self-Archiving

For all JMIR journals, authors retain the copyright of their material and are allowed to self-archive their work as HTML or Word files in institutional repositories and on the web. Authors can republish the material, for example, as a book chapter. It is important to note that publication in another scholarly journal, while possible from a copyright point of view, is generally considered duplicate publication and scientific misconduct. In all cases of republication or self-archiving, the original source (citation) should be provided, including the link to the original JMIR article on, and a note should be included that the work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution License CC-BY 4.0.
