You have a number of options:

  • Try to persuade the publisher that it should accept the KAUST non-exclusive license in order to be able to publish your article.

  • Seek a different publisher.

  • Consult with the Library ( to address the publisher’s specific concerns.

  • Obtain a waiver for the article under the policy. (Note: Even if using the waiver option, authors must deposit a copy of the manuscript version of new scholarly articles in the institutional repository.  The deposited article will then be "dark" (or non-OA), if required by the publisher.)
