The Open Access Policy is effective on or after 8 Aug 2011. All papers accepted for publication by peer-review journals on or after this date should be submitted electronically to the DR-NTU.
Even if you are not the first author, you are still required to submit your papers to DR-NTU for open access. But if you have some prior agreement with other parties that prevent you from submitting to DR-NTU, you may exempt it from submission. Even if there are no such agreement, it is still a good practice to check with the first author to alert him/her that the paper will be submitted to DR-NTU to meet NTU's open access policy. You can get more information on paper here.
