Sciedu Press Calls for Authors to Retain Copyright on Their Articles

 Sciedu Press (Linkedin) is an open access publisher, boasting a vast variety of scholarly publications and journals in extensive fields such as Biology, Humanities and Economics. We aim to make the access of information easier, and through our journals, hope to facilitate advancements in various fields of study.

We believe in a strong ethical code, where authors should retain the copyrights to their work, with the publisher holding first publication rights. Authors should be able to share and post their publications on other websites as well, and our mission is to make it possible for them to do so.

As the world advances at an unprecedented rate, it has become a necessity for researchers to be able to learn from their colleague’s research, so that they may be able to facilitate their research. In today’s modern era of the internet, where information is available at the click of a button, this process is made easier with online publishers such as Sciedu.

We respect the author’s hard work and dedication in compiling a research, and understand the frustration of not being able to share their findings with the rest of the world. Many for-profit websites charge a substantial fee for access to research documents, which can cause a hindrance in research and development.

As we believe in the free flow of information, most of our documents and publications are available free of cost. Not only this, but we also allow the authors to share their work elsewhere, including their own website, to facilitate the spread of knowledge. Through our balanced policy, the author gains recognition in his field of study, while having the freedom to use his work elsewhere as well.

Due to the recent Elsevier takedown notice controversy, where thousands of educational institutes, including Harvard, were sent notices to take down published journals from their websites, many authors are a bit hesitant to publish their work through a publication. We ensure authors a sense of security to share their work, giving them due credit by entitling them full copyrights for their published journals.

Through our contributions to the various fields of study, we wish to facilitate professionals, by making thousands of research documents accessible to them with the click of a button. Along with that, we encourage authors to share their research on their own website as well.
