Does the policy apply to co-authored articles?

Yes, the policy applies to all peer-reviewed articles authored or co-authored while the person is a member of the faculty of SIUE.  Co-authors own a share of the copyright to the co-authored work and as such are covered by the policy.  Co-authors from other institutions should be informed about the policy, and if they object to the terms, a waiver may be claimed.  In the event that a co-author from another institution deposits the article in their institution’s repository, it is still necessary to deposit the article in SPARK
