I am writing my PhD thesis now and my supervisor said it can be in the cumulative way because I've got enough papers, 3 in sum. So now I look for publisher permission to reprint the papers. My university uploads every thesis after it is defended to the university database, which is open access for everyone.
I got a little bit scared that I won't get the permission from Taylor & Francis, where my first paper is published, so the first chapter of my thesis is published. They need 6-8 weeks to answer, maybe more. So has anyone made some experience with permission to reprint their papers in cumulative thesis?
The other paper I use is published with Sage, and they say on their website, that it is possible to use the whole finale PDF in the thesis.
Is it common to just include the original paper PDFs in the thesis?
