For Authors: Guidelines for Obtaining and Sharing a PDF Copy of Your Article
The University of Wisconsin Press does not generally provide authors with PDF copies of final files of their articles. To obtain a PDF, try the following options:
- Personally subscribe to the journal which would enable you to download a PDF version of any article.
- Check your institution’s library for an active journal subscription, and if the library subscribes, you can download a PDF file of any article from the online edition. If your library does not subscribe, encourage them to do so by using our easy-to-use Library Recommendation Form.
- Check your institution's library for an active Project MUSE® subscription, and if the library subscribes, you can download a PDF file of any article from the online edition. If your library does not subscribe, encourage them to do so by using our easy-to-use Library Recommendation Form. Project MUSE currently provides access to Arctic Anthropology, Contemporary Literature, Ecological Restoration, The Journal of Human Resources, Land Economics, Landscape Journal, Luso-Brazilian Review, Monatshefte, and Native Plants Journal.
- Purchase the article: Go to HighWire Press, locate your article, and as a non-subscriber pay the $17 fee via credit card enabling you to download the article as a PDF.
The University of Wisconsin Press does not allow open online distribution of final articles on author websites or institutional repositories. We do allow posting a short abstract of your article on your professional website, along with a link to the UWP journal webpage. Our mission as a university press is to share with the reading public the fruits of academic research and writing. We take that mission seriously, as we must the fiduciary responsibility we have to the university and the state of Wisconsin. To stay viable we must recover our materials and labor costs through sales of the works we publish. We strive to maintain a balance between our mission and our mandate, but this fragile balance would quickly be upset were our publications to be made freely available. We very much hope that you understand our position and our concern.
All UW Press journal articles are protected by United States copyright law. Permission must be obtained to copy, reprint, or in any way reproduce or display all or part of any journal published by the University of Wisconsin Press.
