Open Access Policy

Aiming to support the idea of accessing information most easily, JTDED adopts an open-access policy and supports the idea of requiring peer-reviewed journals to become open-access access appearing in the Budapest Open Access Initiative signed on September 12, 2012. Thus, the open-access policies adopted by the editorial board of JTDED can be found at

Budapest Open Access Initiative defines the concept of “open access” as [peer-reviewed works’] “… free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.

In this respect, authors hold the copyrights of their manuscripts as well as the final papers. The authors hold the copyright without any restrictions. Copyright transfer agreements and similar agreements are not requested from the authors. Solely for keeping the integrity and quality all JTDED content is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.  This license terms are not binding for authors. JTDED full-text articles are published online immediately after their procedures and are openly and freely accessible afterwards. No fees or subscriptions are required for access to the full-text articles. In thinking of sharing knowledge/information in the expansion of scientific developments, open-access policies promise great potential for researchers and readers. Based on this perspective, JTDED invites its readers to freely access and use its published works by referring to their sources and authors. The readers do not need to obtain permission from the authors or the publisher.
