All of EWA Publishing's fully open access journals publish open access articles under a Creative Commons license. With Creative Commons licenses, the author retains copyright and the public is allowed to reuse the content. Authors grant EWA Publishing a license to publish the article and to identify as the original publisher. Most journals in our open access program offer one or more of three license types. The selected license type will be indicated in the Open Access Agreement.
Creative Commons is a non-profit organization that has released several copyright licenses known as Creative Commons licenses free of charge to the public. The licenses grant rights to the users of the content but do not replace the copyright, which remains with the copyright owner. EWA Publishing generally publishes open access articles under a CC BY 4.0 license. This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon the author's work, even commercially, as long as they credit the author for the original creation.
The majority of open access articles published by EWA Publishing are now done so under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license. This license allows the author(s) of a work to maintain the sole right to be credited and cited as authors of the work and for everyone (including the authors) to have the rights to distribute, adapt and build upon the work. Further information about the CC BY license is provided below.
There are a number of different types of Creative Commons licenses. These open access licenses remove some of the restrictions applied by copyright law, so that content published under them may be used without permission under certain conditions. These conditions are indicated by initials in the license titles:
There are six main types of Creative Commons licenses. The list below sets out whether you need to obtain permission to reuse work published under any of these licenses.
EWA Publishing's articles published under the gold open access model are currently published under a CC BY license.
Please note that a full citation, including the license under which the content was originally published (and a link to that license) must be included whether or not permission is required.
