For articles that contain copyrighted materials (particularly images), you will likely need to seek permission from the copyright holder to include those materials in the version of the article that you place in the repository, unless you feel that it can be used under the fair use exemption.

If permission is not granted, you may still submit your work to the repository, with a waiver. If you’ve obtained a waiver, your submitted article will not be accessible to the public. However, metadata related to articles in the repository may still be shared with, and indexed by, outside tools such as Google Scholar, providing increased visibility to your work. It can also serve as an archive for your articles.
