drafts of Stata Journal papers on their websites,

Absolutely you may.  As a group of only semi-reformed academics, we are very
much in favor of the widest possible dissemination of ideas and methods.

The only thing we do not want to see are web sites with collected full-text
versions of Stata Journal papers from multiple authors.  We worry that such
sites would reduce subscribership and so make it difficult to continue
publication of the Journal.
