Open Access Policy

LASSIJ provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. LASSIJ is an “open access” journal which gives online access, free of charge and other access barriers.

LASSIJ supports the Bethesda Statement on Open Access Publishing which defines an open access journal as one which grants 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" and from which every article is "deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository".
