The archive posts complete, self-contained papers that have achieved a stable form. It strongly discourages repeated postings to correct errors in papers posted in haste. The archive does not support threaded discussions.
Since the content of the archive is moderated, we regret that we can only accept papers written in English. Up to two business days should be allowed between the time a paper is deposited to the archive and the time it becomes accessible to other users of the archive.
The archive reserves the right to refuse to post papers it deems to lie outside these boundaries. Because of the volume of material posted, the archive cannot enter into correspondence concerning submissions that have been refused. All materials posted will be reviewed by the Editorial Staff for appropriateness. Material may be subject to deletion if materials posted are offensive, in any manner deemed in appropriate by the University of Maryland's Code of Conduct.
No representation is made by the archive on the accuracy or quality of preprints posted. The views and opinions expressed are those of the authors and not the archive sponsors. With respect to the documents available from this server, the archive sponsors make no warranty, expressed or implied, including warrants of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement, and the sponsors do not assume any liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information or material.
The Minority Health and Health Equity Archive will honor all requests from authors for the removal of files deposited along with their associated bibliographic metadata. Unfortunately the EPrints software does not allow you (the depositor) to remove papers automatically. Removal is initiated with a removal request, accessible through the links "Deposit Papers" --> "Review your documents in the archive".
Archive staff will then remove the paper as quickly as possible, typically within one business day. All requests for removal will be honored, although we encourage you to leave preprints posted for stability of the archive's contents. Note that most journals do not require the removal of a preprint upon publication. Authors can check a journal's copyright policy by visiting Sherpa/Romeo.
