Copyright and Self-Archiving for University of Alberta Open Access Journals
Journals participating in the University of Alberta’s Open Access Journal Publishing Program operate under a Diamond Open Access model: articles are openly available online immediately on publication, and authors are not charged any fees to submit or to publish.
Each journal sets their own independent editorial policies, and these vary for each publication. However, all journals are required to ensure that articles published after the date of their signed agreement with the University of Alberta Library are licensed with one of the Creative Commons Licenses.
More detailed information about each journal’s copyright policy, Creative Commons license and self-archiving policy can be found on the journal’s website. Please contact the journal editor directly for more information about a particular journal.You can see all of our journals listed on our Open Journals List.
