Open Access Policy

Our journal is an open access journal and has adopted and implemented the Budapest Open Access Initiative document items shown below.

Publications are licensed under Creative Commons (CC BY-NC 4.0). The policy of the journal is based on scientific contribution and does not allow commercial use of publications. CC's NonCommercial (NC) licenses prohibit uses "primarily for or for commercial advantage or monetary compensation." At this point, the authors sign a special license agreement in which they own the copyright but license the exclusive rights to the publisher in their articles. With this special agreement, the publisher has the right to make and authorize commercial use. The publications can be used or shared in whole or in part, provided that the journal and the authors are cited.

Budapest Open Access Initiative

An old tradition and a new technology have combined to enable unprecedented public good. The old tradition is for scientists to publish their work outputs in academic journals free of charge, at their own request, in order to share research results and knowledge. The new technology is the Internet. The public interest includes the worldwide electronic distribution of peer-reviewed journal literature; It enables completely unrestricted and free access to this literature for scientists, researchers, teachers, students and enthusiasts. removing barriers to access to scientific literature; It paves the way for the acceleration of research, the development of education, the sharing of information between the rich and the poor, the poor and the rich, making this literature as useful as possible, and the unification of humanity in a common intellectual view and information-seeking environment.

This kind of free and free online use, which we call open access, is restricted to a small fraction of the journal literature for various reasons. Despite this limited collection, many different initiatives have demonstrated that open access is economically viable. Open access gives readers the extra power to find and leverage literature resources; It provides broad and measurable new environments of visibility for authors and their work, increasing readership and influence. We call on all interested institutions and individuals to help secure these gains for all, make the rest of the literature accessible, and remove the barriers ahead, especially the price barrier. As the number of supporters of this initiative increases, the benefits of open access will begin to be seen together and even faster.

The literature that scientists present to the world without expectation of pay should be freely available online. This category primarily covers peer-reviewed journal articles; however, preprints of unpeered studies published by authors to receive comments or to share important research results with colleagues are also included in this category. There are many degrees and types of wider and easier access to scientific literature. In this declaration, open access is “the ability to access, read, save, copy, print, scan, link to the full text, index, transfer to software and use for any legal purpose, without financial, legal and technical barriers, of scientific literature through the Internet”. used meaning. Restriction on reproduction-distribution and the role of copyright in this field; should be given to authors to check the integrity of their own work so that they can be properly recognized and cited.

Although peer-reviewed journal literature is freely available to readers online, open access journal publishing is not without cost. However, experience shows that the overall costs in open access are much lower than in traditional forms of distribution. Open access provides an opportunity to save money while expanding the scope of information dissemination. However, there is also a strong incentive for professional associations, universities, libraries, foundations and other institutions to embrace open access to improve their services. Realizing open access will require new cost-sharing models and financing mechanisms, but significantly reducing the total cost of distribution is an indication that the goal is an attainable outcome, not just preferable or utopian.

We recommend using two complementary strategies to ensure open access to scholarly journal literature:

I. Personal Archiving: First, scientists need help and tools when placing their peer-reviewed journal articles in open electronic archives, called personal archiving. When these archives comply with the standards established by the Open Access Initiative, search engines and other tools can treat individual archives as a single archive. Thus, users do not need to know which archives exist and where they are located in order to find archives and benefit from their contents.

II. Open Access Journals: Second, scientists need a tool/method to start publishing the next generation of journals that support open access and contribute to journals that choose to switch to open access. Since journal articles should reach the widest possible audience, copyrights will not be invoked to limit access to and use of material published in these new journals. In the next process, copyrights and other tools will be used to ensure the permanence of all published articles in open access, rather than blocking them. Because price is a barrier to access, these new journals do not charge subscription or access fees and turn to other methods to cover costs. For this purpose; Funds and governments that fund research, universities and laboratories that employ researchers, grants made by disciplines or institutions to support research, open access supporters, proceeds from the sale of essential text plugins will be freed from the closure or cancellation of journals that receive traditional subscription or access fees There are many alternative sources of funding, such as funds or even self-involvement of researchers. Not all branches of science or nations have to accept any of these solutions, and the search for different and creative alternatives should not be abandoned.

The goal is for the peer-reviewed journal literature to be open access. (I) Personal archiving and new generation (II) open access journals are methods of achieving this goal. As well as being directly targeted tools, they also bring academics directly to each other without waiting for changes brought about by the market or legislation. In addition to supporting the two strategies outlined, we also encourage experimenting with more ways to move from existing distribution methods to open access. Flexibility, experimentation and adaptation in local conditions are the best ways to ensure rapid, safe and long-lasting progress in different environments.

Founded by the philanthropist George Soros, the Open Society Institute is dedicated to providing resources and essential aid to cause awareness. The Foundation will use its resources and influence to promote expansion and personal archiving, the publication of new open access journals, and the economic structure of an open access journal system. While the commitment and resources of the Open Society Institute are important, this initiative also needs other institutions/organizations to contribute their strengths and resources.

We invite governments, universities, libraries, journal editors, publishers, foundations, intellectuals, professional organizations and scientists to share our vision, join us in removing barriers to open access, and build a freer education and research environment around the world.
