Guidelines for Web Posting of papers published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA), JASA Express Letters (JASA-EL), or Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA)


The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) grants to the author(s) of papers submitted to or published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA)JASA Express Letters (JASA-EL), or Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA) the right to post and update the article on the Internet with the following specifications.

On the authors’ and employers’ webpages:

  • There are no format restrictions; files prepared and/or formatted by ASA, AIP, or its vendors (e.g., the PDF, PostScript, or HTML article files published in the online journals and proceedings) may be used for this purpose. If a fee is charged for any use of the posted article, ASA permission must be obtained.
  • An appropriate copyright notice must be included along with the full citation for the published paper and a Web link to ASA’s official online version of the abstract.

On free-access E-print servers:

On the National Institutes of Health (NIH) PubMed Central and other funding agency repositories:

  • Authors should indicate NIH funding by adding funding information (funder name, award/grant number and the grant recipient) in the appropriate Funding Information section at the time of submission in Editorial Manager. Upon acceptance of the article, it will automatically be deposited in final published form and associated metadata to PubMed Central (PMC). However, the full text of the article will not become available on PMC until one year after publication.
  • For such articles for which the author has paid ASA’s fees for open access publication of their JASA Express Letters article, ASA will notify the repository that they may post the Article upon publication by AIP on behalf of ASA and its transmission by AIP to the repository.
  • Authors need not sign any additional Transfer of Copyright Agreement, other than the click-through copyright agreed to in the initial submission of the article to JASA in order to be fully compliant with institutional repository requirements such as those imposed by universities. Our agreement respects the spirit of the initiative toward self-archiving of material and supports the basic premise that authors have freedom to reuse their own work for scholarly, noncommercial purposes.


Format for copyright notices

After publication by ASA, the author is required to post the following copyright notice:

Copyright (year) Acoustical Society of America. This article may be downloaded for personal use only. Any other use requires prior permission of the author and the Acoustical Society of America.

along with the following message:

The following article appeared in (citation of published article) and may be found at (URL/link for published article abstract).


Prior to publication by ASA, the notice should state:

The following article has been submitted to/accepted by [Name of Journal]. After it is published, it will be found at [URL/link to the home page of the journal].


For JASA Express Letters:



Creating links
To create a link to your article* in JASA, JASA Express Letters, or POMA, you need to know the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number. For example: Note that the DOI number can be found under the title of each article online or on the title page of the article PDF.

The general format for the URL for articles is:, where

10.1121 is the ASA’s organizational number (DOI prefix) and is always the same
DOIsuffixnumber is the part of the DOI number (DOI suffix) that identifies a specific article


Example of an article link: To link to Whitlow W. L. Au and Kelly J. Benoit-Bird, J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 123, 2884 (2008)

The article URL is:

The HTML link is:
