Open Acess Policy
Optional Open Access:
In order to provide wide publicity to the authors research, STM Journals also have Optional Open Access Policy, those authors who would like to get their work open access can opt for Optional Open Access publication at nominal cost.*
STM Journal(s) endorse the definition of Open Access publication:
Statement of the Publishers:
We believe that Open access will be an essential and unrestricted access of scientific publication in form of Research/ Review/ Short articles and Case studies reporting the results of current scientific research. Scientific work should be as openly accessible and freely useable as possible. Libraries and publishers should make every effort to hasten this transition in a fashion that does not disrupt the orderly dissemination of scientific information.
Open Access Publication:
- The author(s)/ Copyright holder(s) grant(s) all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access to, and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship.
- A complete version of the article and all supplementary files, including a copy right form as stated above, in our standard format is deposited online.
- Accepted articles can be published online for open access for all to view only if desired by the Author, and be deposited by the Publishers in Databases for indexing.
- Open access has maximum Citation and provides the maximum dissemination of the article to the largest audience. Authors must pay for this service. All corresponding authors will be asked to indicate whether or not they wish to pay to have their paper made freely available on publication.
