Open Access Statement

All articles within JoDRM are available online to all users immediately upon publication. Non-commercial use and distribution in any medium is permitted, provided the author and the journal are properly credited. Open access aims to maximize the visibility of research and differs from free online access as it provides reuse rights provided full attribution is given (under the terms of the CC BY-NC-SA license).


Transfer of copyright

The transfer of copyright from author to publisher enable JoDRM to assure maximum dissemination of the author’s work and it is therefore the default option for each manuscript submission.
When the article is accepted for publication, the author(s) agrees to transfer to JoDRM all rights, including those pertaining to electronic forms and transmissions, under existing copyright laws, except for the following, which the author(s) specifically retain(s):
1. The right to make further copies of all or part of the published article for use in classroom teaching;
2. The right to reuse all or part of this material in a compilation or textbook of which he(she) is the author;
3. The right to make copies of the published work for internal distribution within the institution that employs the author.


There is no article-processing charge (APC) for publishing in the journal.
