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