Authors who submit papers to this journal agree to the following terms:
For all articles published in GJSD, copyright is retained by the authors. Articles are licensed under an open access Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/), meaning that anyone may read, use, quote, download and share the paper for free provided that the original published version is cited as an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and its initial publication in this journal.
Authors are able to waive the terms of the CC license and enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution and subsequent publication of this work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal.
It is absolutely essential that authors obtain permission to reproduce any published material (figures, schemes, tables or any extract of a text) which does not fall into the public domain, or for which they do not hold the copyright. Permission should be requested by the authors from the copyright holder. In order to avoid unnecessary delays in the publication process, you should start obtaining permissions as early as possible.
All articles published by the GJSD undergo a double-blind peer-review and upon publication are immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download.
SettingsOnlyOnly submit material and content that is your (or your team's) work entirely.
Permissions: Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors. Please be aware that some publishers do not grant electronic rights for free and that GJSD will not be able to refund any costs that may have occurred to receive these permissions. In such cases, material from other sources should be used.
For manuscripts reporting studies involving human participants, the GJSD requires a statement from authors to confirm that the appropriate ethical approval/s has been received, along with details of the approving ethics committee/board, and that the study conforms to recognized standards, see for example the Declaration of Helsinki and US Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects.
