How to post your own paper on your web site

 This page describes how the author of an article that was published in Advanced Robotics (AR) can post it on a website of its own or an academic organization, such as laboratory or a school library, with which the author belongs to.
  In accordance with the Copyright Regulations of Taylor and Francis (T&F), which is the publisher of AR, an author may upload article data prepared by the author in person, with the exception of the final PDF article provided by T&F, pursuant to the following conditions. In other words, the author is quickly able to upload the article, either before peer review or after reflecting the comments from the peer review, onto a website on the author’s own responsibility.
  This will allow you to proactively advertise your achievements both in Japan and overseas.
  Further, because the article will be deemed to have been officially published with the assignment in Stage 2 below of an Article DOI (this is entered into the iFast field of an online publication in lieu of undetermined volume and issue numbers) prior to the determination of the volume and issue of the AR in which the article is to be published, releasing the article early will lead to an increase in the citation count thereof.
  We strongly encourage you to consider this possibility.
