Open Access Policy and Archiving

GRID is an open access journal providing online access on publication. Anybody can view, download (as PDF) and check the metrics of the articles via the website of the journal. This journal believes that the free and unrestricted availability of scientific researches will contribute the spread of information globally. In that context, GRID adheres to the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) and defines its Open Access policy according to their guidelines.

"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."

Authors have the right to be properly acknowledged and cited and they will have the control over the integrity of their work as explained in BOAI declaration. 

GRID is hosted by DergiPark platform. The platform provides editorial workflow management with permanent and secure protection of journal content for archiving based on LOCKSS System.
