Access requirements
The output must be presented in a form that allows anyone with internet access to search electronically within the text, read it and download it without charge, while respecting any constraints on timing.*  Once accessible, the output should remain so.
Outputs whose text is encoded only as a scanned image do not meet the requirement that the text be searchable electronically.
Where a deposited output is later replaced or augmented following its initial deposit, this must also meet the access requirements.  Embargo periods may not re-start with subsequent deposits:  they are linked to the date of publication.

 

* It is advised that outputs licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-commercial Non-derivative (CC BY-NC-ND) licence would meet the minimum requirement.
