Open Access Policy
As an open access journal, we provide immediate open access to our content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. As such, users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.
Authors are able to enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with a clear acknowledgement of its initial publication in this journal.
Authors are permitted to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) prior to and during the submission process - this applies to the submitted, accepted, and published versions of the manuscript. This can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work (see The Effect of Open Access).
Submissions to IJSaP are free - meaning we do not impose any fees for: (i) submissions by authors to the journal; (ii) for the publication of their work by the journal; and (iii) for any other incidental costs incurred during the process.
The journal's content is archived using the CLOCKSS and OLRC (Ontario Library Research Cloud).
