As an academic author, you have more rights than you think. Most journal publishers allow you to self-deposit (upload) your work into a university institutional repository. CUNY’s institutional repository is Academic Works.
How does this work? It’s easy to create an account with CUNY Academic Works. Once you have set up your account, consult your CV, and check the policies of the journals you have published in at SHERPA RoMEO, a website devoted to providing this information. Publishers usually allow you to self-deposit a version of your article, typically the final, accepted manuscript after peer-review, often available for you to share within a half-year after publication.
The more often your work is read, the more often it is cited. Your article in Academic Works is easily found by Google Scholar. More importantly, now readers can get access to your article without restriction. Academic Works provides all contributors with monthly reports of how often your articles are downloaded, a great benefit that documents the impact of your work.
