Open Access Policy

Open access is an ongoing publication practice that differs in the way traditional methods of publishing papers to the public get submitted, reviewed, authenticated and finally published.  In Open Access publication model neither readers nor a reader’s institution are charged for access to articles or other resources. Users are free to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles without requiring a subscription to the journal in which these articles are published.

UOCHJLL follows the Open Access policy. All research articles published in UOCHJLL are fully open access and immediately freely available to read, download and share. Articles are published under the terms of a Creative Commons license, which permits use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant(s) to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access to, 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  well as the right to make small numbers 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.

Notes:

Open access is a property of individual works, not necessarily journals or publishers.

Community standards, rather than copyright law, will continue to provide the mechanism for enforcement of proper attribution and responsible use of the published work, as they do now.

Open articles are published under Creative Commons licenses. Authors publishing in the University of Chitral, Journal of Linguistics & Literature (JUOCHLL) can use the following Creative Commons licenses for their articles:

  1. Creative Commons Attribution license (CC BY)
  2. Creative Commons Non-Commercial license (CC BY-NC)
