Off-shell archive is a repository for scholarly material in the field of off-shell science, and perpetual access is necessary to maintain the scholarly record. As such, Off-shell archive keeps a permanent record of every submission and replacement announced. Off-shell archive is administered and managed by Research Origin for Dressed Photon (RODreP), which is a general incorporated association founded in 2017 for promoting off-shell science and dressed-photon science.
Off-shell archive does not ask that copyright be transferred; that is, the authors own the copyright. Authors should take care to upload an article only if they are certain that they will not later wish to publish it in a journal that prohibits prior distribution on an e-print server. Off-shell archive will not remove an announced article to comply with such a journal policy.
Authors are thus free to publish submissions that already appear on Off-shell archive.
