The American Psychological Association (APA) has developed policies to allow authors who publish in
APA journals to comply with the manuscript archiving requirements for Wellcome Trust.

Authors publishing in APA journals can comply with Wellcome Trust’s policies by paying a subsidy fee to
APA to help offset the costs of peer review, editing, and production costs. The fee has been set at $4,000
per article for all APA journals.

Upon final publication, APA will send PubMed Central (PMC) the final document that will also appear in
PsycARTICLES, APA’s online full-text article database. APA will authorize its public posting on PMC, and
PMC mirror sites, immediately. PMC and PMC mirror sites will also link directly to the article in
PsycARTICLES. APA will also make the article freely available to the public on the APA Journals website.

To ensure that your manuscript is published and disseminated in a manner compliant with
Wellcome Trust policies, the corresponding author should complete and sign the form

                Supplemental Terms and Conditions for Sponsored Manuscript Submissions

The American Psychological Association (APA) has, through certain arrangements with funding agencies
including the Wellcome Trust, agreed to post sponsored final documents (hereafter referred to as
“documents”) used to generate the definitive published journal article, to PubMed Central (PMC) or PMC
mirror sites for non-commercial purposes only.

Documents posted to PMC are protected by copyright and are posted to PMC by permission of APA. At
the time of deposit, posted documents included all changes made during peer review, copyediting, and
publishing. PMC and PMC mirror site host sites are responsible for all links within the document and for
incorporating any publisher-supplied amendments or retractions as subsequently issued. For a document
that has been sponsored, the published journal article, guaranteed to be such by APA, is available for free
to non-subscribers. Please visit the APA Journals website at www.apa.org/journals for more information.

For non-commercial purposes users may access, download, copy, display and redistribute documents as
well as adapt, translate, text and data mine content contained in documents, subject to the following
    •   The author’s moral right to the integrity of their work is not compromised.

    •   Where the content in the document is identified as belonging to a third party, it is the obligation of the user to ensure that
        any reuse complies with copyright policies of the owner.

    •   If the documents are copied or downloaded for non-commercial research and education purposes the appropriate
        bibliographic citation (authors, journal, article title, volume, issue, and page numbers), DOI, and the link to the definitive
        published version in APA’s full-text online database, PsycARTICLES, should be maintained. Users should not delete
        copyright notices or disclaimers.

    •   Use of documents for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited.

    •   Any translation, for which a prior translation agreement between APA and the translating party has not been established,
        must prominently display the statement: “This is an unofficial translation of an article that has appeared in a publication
        of the American Psychological Association (APA). APA has not endorsed this publication.”

For permission to use documents beyond the conditions stated in this document or for additional
information, visit: www.apa.org/about/copyright.html.

Documents of articles that appeared in APA journals and that are hosted on PMC or PMC mirror sites
were developed during the publication process of the definitive published journal article that appears in
PsycARTICLES and APA electronic publishing platforms. Documents posted to PubMed Central are
without warranty from APA of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to,
warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. In no event shall APA
be liable for any loss or damage arising out of, or in connection, with the use or performance of this

These supplemental terms and conditions do not effect or change APA’s author posting policy. Authors of
articles published in APA journals may post a copy of the final manuscript, as a word processing, PDF, or
other type file, on their Web site or their employer's server after it is accepted for publication. The
following conditions would prevail:

    •   The posted article must carry an APA copyright notice and include a link to the APA journal home page.
    •   Further, the posted article must include the following statement: "This article may not exactly replicate the final version
        published in the APA journal. It is not the copy of record."
    •   APA does not permit archiving with any other non-APA repositories.
    •   APA does not provide electronic copies of the APA published version for this purpose, and authors are not permitted to
        scan in the APA published version.
