The policy offered for open access journals
The authors whose works are published in the journal must accept the following conditions:
- The author holds the copyright of the work and gives the first publication right to the journal. The work is licensed under a Creative Commons Atrribution license, which allows the author to be identified and shared by others, provided that the initial release is made in this journal.
- The author may make separate contractual arrangements for the distribution of the published version of the work without full authorization (eg, submission to an institutional database or publication in a book).
- Authors are encouraged to share their works on the Internet (e.g. in an institutional database or on their own websites) before they submit to the journal or during the submission procedure; this can lead to both efficient exchange of ideas and early and more referral to the work (see The Impact of Open Access).
