  • everyone has free and unlimited access to the full text of articles published in this journal; manuscripts are freely available without subscription or price barriers
  • papers are immediately released in open-access format (no long waiting periods),
  • Open Access publication is supported by authors' institutes or research funding agencies by payment of a comparatively low Article Processing Fee (APF) for accepted articles.

High Visibility and High Availability - free and unlimited accessibility of the publication over the internet without any restrictions.

The definition of OA introduced in the original BOAI:

By “open access” to [peer-reviewed research literature], we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution and the only role for copyright in this domain should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.

Journal’s open access policy is committed to the recommendations and standards of the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI).


This journal utilizes the PKP PLN LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.
