For more information about green-open access, we suggest explore this link to a very helpful webpage,, created by speech, hearing, and language scientists which describes the details and steps of self-archiving your research.

We all know that making stuttering and cluttering research accessible is important because we want our research read by other scholars, used in clinical practice by speech-language pathologists/therapists, and disseminated to the stuttering and cluttering communities. Yet, achieving these is difficult because published research articles are often restricted by memberships, paywalls, etc. that many people cannot easily access. The Advocacy Committee of the IFA encourages all researchers to make versions of your research publicly available through green-open access to increase accessibility by all parties. Green open-access is a term that describes legally self-archiving your manuscript at any stage of the publication process on an institutional repository, laboratory website, or a personal website.
