International Journal of Social Sciences (IJSS) allows all authors to deposit all versions of their article or publisher's version/pdf for self-archiving (author’s personal website) or archive in any institutional or other repository. These practices benefit authors with productive exchanges as well as earlier and greater citation of published work.
Open Access pathways allowed by the repository policy of IJSS are as follows by article version:
Submitted Version / Accepted Version / Published Version:
Embargo: No embargo
Licence: CC BY-NC 4.0
Copyright Owner: Authors
Location: Any repository author's home page journal website
Conditions: Published sources must be acknowledge with citation
Author Self-Archiving Policy
As IJSS is an Open Access journal, authors have the right to make their articles publicly available under the terms of the CC BY-NC license. Publishing under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license, authors may share and distribute their articles on non-commercial websites and repositories.
Re-use Guidelines for Open Access Content
When posting, distributing or reusing Open Access articles, the journal should be clearly attributed as the original place of publication and correct citation details should be given. Authors should also deposit the URL/DOI of their published article in any repository, in addition to the version of record.
When making their article available according to the terms of their Open Access licence, we strongly encourage authors to deposit the version of record. This will guarantee that the definitive version is readily available to those accessing your article from such repositories and means that your article is more likely to be cited correctly.
As there are many ways you can share the different versions of your article as it moves through the stages towards publication a summary is provided as follows.
