JIRS allows self-archiving of accepted and published papers through open access policy before and after the publication of a paper. Authors retain the copyright of their scholarly work and can archive pre-print and post-print or publisher’s version/PDF to personal or institutional repositories or libraries anytime without requiring permission from the journal or publisher.
Authors of published articles in JIRS are entitled to deposit their published papers in institutional and/or centrally organized repositories and can make this publicly available immediately upon acceptance and publication, provided that JIRS attributes as the original place of publication and that correct citation details are given.
Authors can also make their published article publicly available immediately after publication without requiring any permission to different repositories, libraries, or personal websites if they also deposit the URL of their published article, in addition to the PDF version by correctly citing the journal name with other citation details.
Digital Archiving and Preservation
In order to digitally preserve all published scholarly content JIRS has occupied its space on archive.org while registration on other archiving platforms i.e; Portico Archive for published articles.
For the preservation of JIRS publishing policies and guidelines submission process is initiated with Sherpa Romeo by submitting registration form with official request and will be available soon after successful registration.
