Open Access Policy

JAO is an open-access journal that publishes articles compliant with the open-access policy based on the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) Declaration and the free publication policy. JAO's basic principle is to provide users with open access to scientific information.

The archive of the journal can be accessed free of charge at

The definition of OA introduced in the original BOAI is "the free availability on the public internet that allows any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles by "open access" [to the peer-reviewed research literature]. "Can scan for indexing, transmit as data to software, or use it for any other legal purpose without financial, legal or technical barriers that cannot be separated from access to the Internet. The sole purpose of copyright in this area is to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to cite it appropriately."
