We supports Open Access
FOREX Press (FP) is mission-driven to facilitate the widest possible dissemination of high-quality research. We embrace both green and gold open access (OA) publishing to support this mission.
"Open Access" fundamental is when publications are freely availble online to all at no cost and with limited restrictions with regards reuse. The unrestricted distribution of research is especially important for authors (as their work gets seen by more people), readers (as they can access and build on the most recent work in the field) and funders (as the work they fund has broader impact by being able to reach a wider audience).
Open access categories and our OA policy:
Unrestricted online access to your research
The FOREX Press provides all authors with the option to make their article gold open access through payment of an article processing charge on acceptance in any of our journals.
Gold OA makes the final version of an article freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Copyright for the article is retained by the authors and most of the permission barriers are removed.
Gold OA publications offer: All of the articles are gold open access, usually after payment of an article processing charge. The content is available free online for everyone to read. Our full open access journals are:
Important: just because a journal offers free access to content this does not mean is it Open Access. As described above Gold OA also allows the re-use of the work as long as the authors are acknowledged and cited as they retain the copyright. Simply allowing everyone with an internet connection to read the content does not constitute gold OA.
By submitting an accepted manuscript to our online repository, make your article open access
When you publish an article / book in the Forex Press Journal, our standard license allows you to make your accepted manuscript of your article freely available after a period of 12 months. This is known as the green route for open access.
Green OA, also referred to as self-archiving, is the practice of placing a version of an author’s manuscript into a repository, making it freely accessible for everyone. The version that can be deposited into a repository is dependent on the funder or publisher. Unlike Gold OA the copyright for these articles usually sits with the publisher of, or the society affiliated with, the title and there are restrictions as to how the work can be reused. There are individual self-archiving policies by journal or publisher that determine the terms and conditions e.g. which article version may be used and when the article can be made openly accessible in the repository (also called an embargo period).
Accepted manuscripts contain accurate, peer-reviewed content, so making an accepted manuscript freely available is one way of satisfying open access mandates.
However the format of an accepted manuscript may not meet academic publishing standards. Only the version of record is professionally formatted and edited for journal publication.
An embargo is a period of time when access to published content is temporarily restricted. If you choose to publish an article using the green open access route, your publisher will usually require an embargo before you may make your article freely accessible. Some people call this 'delayed open access'.
During the embargo period:
- • Your article's version of record is published in one of our journals, where it is available to subscribers.
- • Restrictions apply to how you may distribute other versions of your article. If author wish to download the accepted article copy before completing embargo period, they need to pay for immediate free.
After the embargo period:
- • Once the author completes the term of Embargo in its entirety, their article will automatically be fully included in the Open Access Library and available for citations. if publication is desired, the accepted article may be freed even before the Embargo period and can be fully included in open access.
An Open Access publication is one that meets the following conditions:
The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship, as well as the right to make small number of printed copies for their personal use.
A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in a suitable standard electronic format is deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository that is supported by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable Open Access, unrestricted distribution, interoperability, and long-term archiving (for the clinical/pharmaceutical/biomedical sciences, PubMed Central is such a repository).
Open Access is a property of individual works.
Community standards, rather than copyright law, will continue to provide the mechanism for enforcement of proper attribution and responsible use of the published work.
