Dear Sir / Madam,

I just wanted to clarify one point made on your Author
Licence FAQ web page.

Point 1 states:
'The licence says I may post the PDF on my "own" web
site. What does "own" mean?
It means a personal site, or portion of a site, either
owned by you or at your institution (provided this
institution is not for profit).....'

Does this include an Institution-based e-print server at a
University (a not-for-profit service)?

If it does not then does the licence allow a
pre-publication version of the work (eg. The same content
but in the Author's original format, not the published PDF)
to be included on an Institution-based e-print server at a

As Point 2 states:
'...The content of the article is your copyright, its
presentation...remains our copyright'

Many Thanks,
