Short summary of publisher copyright policies & self-archiving. Taken from SHERPA

So the following is just a list of information taken from Sherpa/Romeo about the Self-Archiving-OpenAccess-policies of some major journals which may be of interest for Earth-Science-researchers, especially those focussed on their H and journals’ IF.

By the way, is HIF a thing? Possibly?

Anyway, no warranty. Before you do something check with Sherpa/Romeo, check with the journal homepage, if it is unclear, ask the journal.
