Great Rift Publishing

Our journal is dedicated to promoting open access to scientific knowledge and research. We firmly believe that making research freely available to the global community accelerates scientific progress, fosters innovation, and increases the impact of scholarly work. This Open Access Policy outlines our commitment to providing open access to research articles and the principles that guide our approach.

Principles of Open Access:

  1. Accessibility:

    • All research articles published in our journal are freely accessible to readers worldwide, without any financial, legal, or technical barriers.
  2. Author Retention of Copyright:

    • Authors retain copyright of their work and grant our journal a non-exclusive license to publish, archive, and distribute the content.
  3. Licensing:

    • Articles are typically published under a Creative Commons license, allowing users to reuse, remix, and share content with proper attribution.
  4. No Article Processing Charges (APCs):

    • We do not charge authors any Article Processing Charges (APCs) or submission fees for publishing their work in our open-access journal.
  5. Quality Assurance:

    • Open-access articles undergo the same rigorous peer review process and editorial standards as subscription-based journals to ensure the highest quality of scholarship.
  6. Long-Term Preservation:

    • We are committed to preserving open-access content in a digital repository to ensure its accessibility and longevity.

Types of Open Access:

  1. Gold Open Access:

    • All articles published in our journal are immediately accessible to readers upon publication on our website.
  2. Hybrid Open Access:

    • In certain cases, authors may choose to publish their work as open access within a subscription-based journal, allowing them to make their individual articles freely available.
  3. Green Open Access (Self-Archiving):

    • Authors are encouraged to deposit their accepted manuscripts in institutional or subject-specific repositories, providing open access to their work after an embargo period.

Open Access Benefits:

  1. Global Reach:

    • Open access ensures that research reaches a broader, global audience, maximizing its impact and potential for collaboration.
  2. Innovation:

    • Free and open access to research fosters innovation, as researchers, educators, and policymakers can build upon and apply existing knowledge.
  3. Public Engagement:

    • Open access allows the general public to engage with and benefit from research findings, promoting public understanding of science.
  4. Accessibility for All:

    • Open access ensures that researchers in resource-constrained settings and individuals without institutional access can freely access research.
