Open Access, License & Copyright
Tecno Scientifica Publishing is an independent academic publisher with an editorial team comprising many of the world’s leading researchers. This means that all articles which are published in journals on our platform are open access and freely available from the moment of publication. We also believe that scholarly research is by its nature collaborative and that sharing of information is a crucial factor for advancing human knowledge and understanding.
All articles on the Tecno Scientifica Publishing platform are “gold” open access and therefore freely available in perpetuity from the moment of publication with a Creative Commons (CC) end-user license attached. Under this model the costs of publishing can be covered either by Article Publication Charges (APCs) to Authors (or rather Authors’ institutions or research funders) which can vary by journal, or by the society or institution which owns and funds the journal, or a combination of both. Note that no fees will be charged for rejected articles and no surcharges will apply for the length of an article, for illustrations and figures (including color figures), and for supplementary data unless noted otherwise (refer to a publication’s Author Guidelines for further details).
Authors shall retain the copyright of their work and grant the Journal/Publisher rights for the first publication with the work concurrently licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (CC BY 4.0).
Under this license, authors who submit their papers for publication in Tecno Scientifica Publishing journals agree to have the CC BY 4.0 license applied to their work, and that anyone is allowed to reuse the article or part of it free of charge for any purpose, including commercial use. As long as the author and original source are properly cited, anyone may copy, redistribute, reuse and transform the content.
This broad license intends to facilitate free access, as well as the unrestricted use of original works of all types. This ensures that the published work is freely and openly available in perpetuity.
