Open Access Policy

Sharing of the research results is an important component of the research process; research can only advance by sharing the results, and the value of an investment in research is only maximized through wide use of its results. Open Access articles are free to all interested readers, and the publishers place no financial or copyright barriers between the readers and the article. On this basis, JES provides immediate open access to its content where all content is freely available and accessible without charge. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from JES or the author, provided the author and the journal are properly credited.

Benefits of open access for authors include:

  1. Free access for all users worldwide.

  2. Authors retain copyright to their work.

  3. Increased visibility and readership.

  4. Rapid publication.

  5. No spatial constraints.

Free of charge publishing
