JOP policy in terms of copyright is a quite innovative one. We strongly believe in the importance for Authors to retain the intellectual property of the articles that they send to journals in order to facilitate the scientific communication and exchange.
For these reasons, JOP does not follow a traditional copyright policy. This means that Authors retain the intellectual property of their scientific contributions.
