Journal Policies / Open Access

This journal, and the others published by VGTU Press, are published Open Access under a licence CC-BY 4.0 which allows readers to reuse the content without restriction. Open Access allows for unrestricted sharing of scholarly information and helps to promote knowledge throughout the world. VGTU supports Open Access as an equitable means of ensuring that scholarly research, usually funded by public institutions, is made available to all.

Open Access publications are more likely to be discovered, read, cited, and used for future research than those published in closed journals, and we believe it is in the best interests of authors and their parent institutions, as well as the journals themselves, to make all our content freely available and reusable.

Authors retain copyright in their articles, but grant VGTU Press the right of the first publication.
