Publisher's Article Templates

Some publishers may require authors to use their templates for paper submission, or provide such templates to assist authors in properly formatting their manuscripts. These templates usually include the publisher's logo, formatting, and other design elements.

Here is an example of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC): Article templates & services

In most cases, publishers regard manuscripts produced using their templates to be accepted manuscripts, not publisher versions. They can therefore be uploaded to institutional repositories.

Please be assured that if there is any doubt, the Research Visibility team will verify their policies with the publisher before posting your manuscript to the HKBU Institutional Repository.
