Open Access Policy

We follow the Gold Open Access way in journal publishing: Authors publish in Redfame journals that provide immediate open access to all of their articles on the publisher’s website.

The Open Access Publishing refers to the free availability of peer-reviewed papers on the worldwide internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full manuscripts. However, you must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license (Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License.), and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

The Open Access Policy grants CRIBFB the right to license articles for free use. Alternatively, the authors (or their institution or funding agency) pay an article processing charge to finance the operation of the journals.

Deposit Policy / Archiving Policy

We follow the SHERPA/RoMEO green archiving policy. Both pre-print and post-print or publisher’s version/PDF can be archived, without restrictions. This journal utilizes the LOCKSS, CLOCKSS, OpenAIRE, ZENODO, OSF system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication. Copyrights for articles published in CRIBFB journals are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author's responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.
