Open Access

DRArch has strongly adopted the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing set by DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals).

DRArch is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to users or institutions.  Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the DOAJ definition of open access.

In addition, the journal encourages authors to archive the published version of their articles on their institutional repositories and as well as other appropriate websites or respositories. 

When sharing works originally published in DRArch on other platforms, please use the final version made publicly available on DRArch's website. We also ask authors to avoid from engaging in new contractual or licensing agreements that will influence DRArch's existing rights. <Back to Journal Policy>
