By way of indication, “commercial purposes” include
- Copying or downloading articles, or linking to such postings, for further redistribution, sale or licensing, for a fee;
- Copying, downloading or posting by a site or service that incorporates advertising or sponsorship with such content;
- Inclusion or incorporation of article content in other works or services (other than normal quotations with an appropriate citation) that is then available for sale or licensing, for a fee;

Scholarly articles published by ADA are freely accessible online 6 months from the print publication date in full-text HTML format and 12 months from the print publication date in PDF format.
The final print versions of articles funded by NIH are deposited in PubMed Central (PMC). In compliance with NIH’s public access policy, these articles will appear on PMC 12 months from the print publication date in Diabetes Care, Diabetes, Clinical Diabetes, and Diabetes Spectrum. All articles, regardless of funding body, are delivered to PubMed for inclusion in the PubMed index.
Authors are permitted to submit the final, accepted version of their manuscript to their funding body or institution for inclusion in their funding body or institution's database, archive, or repository, or to post the final, accepted version on their personal website. These manuscripts may be made freely accessible to the public upon acceptance, provided that the following two conditions are observed:
First, post-prints must include the following statement of provenance and, once the final version has been published in the journal, a link to the final published version of the paper on the journal's website:
“This is an author-created, uncopyedited electronic version of an article accepted for publication in [insert ADA journal title]. The American Diabetes Association (ADA), publisher of [insert ADA journal title], is not responsible for any errors or omissions in this version of the manuscript or any version derived from it by third parties. The definitive publisher-authenticated version will be available in a future issue of [insert ADA journal title] in print and online at [insert journal URL: http://care.diabetesjournals.org, http://diabetes.diabetesjournals.org, http://clinical.diabetesjournals.org, or http://spectrum.diabetesjournals.org].”
Second, the version of the manuscript deposited or posted must be identical to the final accepted version, with the exception of the addition of the above statement and any changes necessary to correct errors. Authors may make changes to the posted version to correct mistakes or may issue an erratum at any time. However, the final published version of the manuscript may not be deposited, posted, or later substituted for the post-print.
