Q. What is an Open access Publication?

A. Open access (OA) literature is advanced, online could be accessed for without cost. An OA

Publication is accompanies with the following two conditions:

  1. The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant(s) to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access to, and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship, as well as the right to make small numbers of printed copies for their personal use.
  2. A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in a suitable standard electronic format is deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository that is supported by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable open access, unrestricted distribution, interoperability, and long-term archiving.

The meaning of an open access publication as characterized by the specialists at ARC:

The word Open Access we define it as free availability of scientific data on the public web, permitting any clients to scrutinize, download, copy, spread, print, interest, or associate with the full messages of these articles, creep them for indexing, pass them as data to programming, or use them for whatever other lawful reason, without money, authentic, or specific hindrances other than those interlaced from acquiring access to the web itself.

Any papers distributed in one of the journals that fit in with ARC Publications are copyright and copyright and licensing transferred by the authors..

Open access - copyright compatibility

Open access journals published under the ARC Publication label will ask authors to transfer copyright to the publisher. In either case, the copyright holder will consent to open access for the published work. When the publisher holds the copyright, it will consent to open access directly. When authors hold the copyright, they will insure open access by signing a license to the publisher authorizing open access.

Open access - print compatibility

Open access is online access, but it does not exclude print access to the same works. Open access is free of charge to readers, but it does not exclude priced access to print versions of the same works. (Because print editions are expensive to produce, they tend to be priced rather than free.) Open access does not exclude printouts by users or print archives for security and long-term preservation.
