Copyright (publishing and duplication rights) and author’s property right
- How will copyright be handled?
In accordance with Scientific Research Center’s professional and academic protocols (a global academic publisher based in Haryana, India), an article that is not the author’s own work, that has already been published, and that is under review in other publications will not be approved. There should be no defamatory or illegal statements in the article as well as sentences that violate the rights of others. A full manifest of our Ethical Guidelines for Authors (PDF) is available. The author must own the copyrights (have the right to publish) and sign the copyright agreement if necessary. By submitting the article, the author agrees to these conditions.
- Guidelines for open access articles on copyright
Open access articles are not subject to copyright assignment. Copyright agreements (publishing and duplication) do not need to be signed by authors of open access articles. In all of our journals, open access and copyright permission are reserved for article authors. When an article is open access, the author reserves the copyright and grants the journal first publication rights to the article. Furthermore, these articles are published under the Creative Commons license, which ensures that other researchers can take advantage of them and access them without any sanctions. It is our policy to comply with all requirements set forth by UKRI (UK Research and Innovation), Wellcome Institute (Wellcome Open Access Journal Institute), and NISCAIR (National Institute of Science Communication and Information Resources). According to the requirements of these institutions, all articles sponsored by them must be freely available to the public. The investor of the article’s author may, if necessary, reserve the right to distribute the accepted manuscript to subject or institutional scientific repositories (for example, journals archives of biological science texts) under the Creative Commons 4 documents license at most before the first online publication.
- Guidelines on copyright for non-free access articles
In the event that the non-free access article is accepted for printing, the author’s copyright agreement/contract must be sent through the online system in addition to the accepted final version of the article.
After reading and reviewing the following explanations, every author must sign the reproduction agreement (author’s copyright agreement). Alternatively, you may submit the signatures of all authors on separate sheets or as a collection on one form.
In the title of the article, the name of the author or authors should be given along with the order in which it was written. “Responsible Author” is expected to collect and submit copyrights from each author.
Here are some tips on how to add a digital signature.
It is the policy of the Scientific Research Center to adhere to the highest standards of publication, in accordance with the principles of two-way secret refereeing/double-blind secret refereeing. To the extent of our abilities, we endeavor to make published articles accessible to as many individuals as possible. As well as to increase the reputation and credit of the author of the journal, the editor, and the board of editors, and to make the additional title of the publisher more valuable to both print and online versions of the journal. As a professional and courteous means of doing this, we ask the authors of non-open access articles that have been accepted for publication to sign a copyright agreement and transfer this right to the Scientific Research Center.
In the printing of journals, it is standard practice to transfer the copyright to the publisher. The system allows publishers to negotiate with databases and document providers and can also grant permission for articles to be reprinted in books, educational packages, and electronic resources. Alternatively, they can make it available to libraries on loan so that it is more effective and efficient in serving the needs of libraries and their users.
Delegating this right also relieves authors of time-consuming and costly administrative duties. Additionally, it provides publishers with authority to protect the rights of authors against plagiarism, and to enforce laws in the event of violation of authors’ rights, including copyright infringement, unauthorized use, and, most importantly, moral rights violations and reputation damage.
- If the author publishes the article, what rights does he have and what is he permitted to do following publication?
The authors of accepted articles will receive a PDF version of the published article.
There are three ways in which authors may use their published article for non-marketing purposes:
- There is no restriction on the posting of the name of the “original author/creator of the work” on the personal or organizational pages of websites or on scientific databases of institutions or on personal treasures without sanctions and to the extent desired.
For free open access science banks, if the original version was funded by RCUK, Wellcome TRUST, please use this CC BY: Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivs 4.0 clause. In any other case, please adhere to the licensing restrictions imposed by the Scientific Research Center for all copyrighted materials.
- Version accepted by the author
- Upon publication, the accepted manuscript may be shared internally among the group of collaborative researchers
- Publication of the accepted version on academic social networks or social networks subject to an embargo of 12 months after publication (green open source).
- Posting the accepted version of the article on academic social networks or on social networks under an embargo of 24 months after publication (green open access).
- When an article has been published as a golden open access article, the accepted copy should be sent immediately to repositories/institutional banks or subject banks.
Note: In the case of articles funded by the UK Research Council (RCUK) or the Wellcome Trust (BT) or other government organizations, if the accepted version of the article is to be deposited in institutional banks within 90 days after acceptance and if the embargo period exceeds the investor’s permitted timeframe, please choose golden free access. In the event that this is not possible, please consult your institution regarding the exception clauses in the Policy for Research Excellence Framework of HEFCE (Higher Education Investment Council of England).
- Open access authors are permitted to submit their registered version without restriction or embargo period, which means that these rules do not apply to them. Only after six months from the date of publication by the Scientific Research Center may registered copies of non-free access papers be submitted to subject-based scientific banks such as PubMED by the Investor Agency, which has donated grants to the articles upon which the research is based.
- The application of the paper to the upcoming supplementary research or the course syllables for which the author is a teacher.
Add/include the content of the article in other works by the author
As soon as the journal’s website or DOI code (digital object identifier) is available, it should appear in the acknowledgements section of the manuscript in full citation form, i.e., the title of the publication source and the link to the journal’s website.
During the printing process, articles are titled as follows:
- Original version of the author = the version of the article before expert review (often called the preprint version).
- Accepted version = the accepted edition of the original manuscript of the article that has been approved for publication. Also known as the post-judgment version or the version before typesetting. It is recommended that you keep a copy of this document for future reference.
- Final version/registered version = the final version of the publisher’s article.
