OPEN ACCESS POLICY
Journal of Social Sciences (COE&SJR-JSS) provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
Authors of articles published in the Journal of Social Sciences (COE&SJR-JSS) remain the copyright holders and grant third parties the right to use, reproduce, and share the article according to the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 Unported license agreement.
Here is the definition of "open access" from the
BOAI (Budapest Open Access Initiative):
"By 'open access' to this literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet,
permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles,
crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose,
without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself.
The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain,
should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited."
