Why Open Access


An Open Access Publication is one that meets the following two conditions (see the original statement here):

1.  The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant(s) to all users 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, as well as the right to make small numbers of printed copies for their personal use.

2.  A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in a suitable standard electronic format is deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository that is supported by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable Open Access, unrestricted distribution, interoperability, and long-term archiving.

All authors are asked to comply to this statement.

All material published by PAGEPress, whether submitted to or created by PAGEPress, is published under an Open Access license that lets others re-mix, and build upon your work for non-commercial purposes, and although their new works must also acknowledge you as their source and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms. 

PAGEPress charges authors a price that reflects the actual costs of publication. However, the ability of authors to pay publication charges will never be a consideration in the decision as to whether to publish. PAGEPress aims to be a truly international organization by providing access to the scientific literature to Everyone, Everywhere, by publishing papers from every nation, and by engaging a geographically diverse group of scientists in the editorial process. 

PAGEPress has chosen to apply the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC 4.0) to all manuscripts to be published under its name. This license lets others re-mix and build upon your work for non-commercial purposes, and although their new work must also acknowledge you as their source and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.
