to deposit an electronic copy of the published version (if permitted by the publication agreement) or the final manuscript (after peer review) accepted for publication in an institutional and/or subject-based repository at the moment of publication.

to provide free of charge access to this electronic copy to anyone through this repository: immediately if the scientific publication is published "open access", i.e. if an electronic version is also available free of charge via the publisher, or within maximum 12 months of publication, depending on the publisher's policy.
