Open Access Policy

Open Access

Open access (OA) refers to free and unrestricted online access to scientific and scholarly information. The concept of open access was firstly defined by The Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI). Tech Science Press (TSP) defines open access by the followings: peer-reviewed article is freely available without subscription or price barriers, article is immediately released in open access format (no embargo period), and published material can be re-used without obtaining permission as long as a correct citation to the original publication is given.
