Open Access Policy & Repository Policy

Open-Access Policy

ASSHJ publishes an open-access article under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0) (readers are allowed to search, read, download, save, copy, and share).

Every manuscript published on ASSHJ is open-access because we believe academic knowledge should be freely accessible and available to the public in building a universal knowledge exchange. Authors maintain all publishing rights without limitations.

Repository Policy

Authors MAY NOT archive their manuscripts on commercial repositories, but ASSHJ encourages authors to share, and distribute any of their published manuscripts freely and widely.

ASSHJ allows authors to freely self-archive (personal website, and social media platforms), archive in any institutional repository of their choice (on non-profit institutions), and archive on any scholarly indexing databases (such as Google Scholar, ResearchGate, and many more).

The entire manuscript (article) PDF or weblink can be uploaded to the institutional repository of the authors' choice after publication.
