SCRIPTed is an open access journal built on the principles of sharing academic works for the benefit of the wider community. As such, authors retain the copyright to their submission and submissions can be published by SCRIPTed in two ways:

  • the author releases the work under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives licence, which allows users to reuse, copy, publish, perform or communicate the work, provided attribution is given, no commercial use is made of it, and it is republished/re-used in full (excepting quotation); or
  • the author grants SCRIPTed the non-exclusive right to publish the work online and reserve all his/her rights.

For self-archiving purpose, and only after the submission is accepted for publication on SCRIPTed, the author may reuse the original (un-refereed) manuscript, provided that a statement is included indicating that the work is to be, or has been published on SCRIPTed.

Authors reserve the right to republish their submissions without prior consent from SCRIPTed, on the condition that it is clearly acknowledged that the work is first published on a specified issue of SCRIPTed.
