The policy of Screening for Plagiarism
The publisher and journal have a policy of “Zero Tolerance on the Plagiarism”. We check the plagiarism issue through two methods: reviewer check and plagiarism prevention tool (https://www.turnitin.com).
All submissions will be checked by Turnitin before being sent to reviewers.
Keep a Similarity Index <25% and single-source matches are not >2%
Copyrights of all articles published in CRIBFB 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.
All articles are published under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license.
Authors have the right to reuse, republish, archive, and distribute their own articles after publication, and undertake to permit others to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon this work non-commercially provided the original work is properly cited. The full guidance that applies to the CC-BY license can be found at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
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.
Open Access Policy
We follow the Gold Open Access way in journal publishing: Authors publish in CRIBFB 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.
All manuscripts should be written in English and prepared according to the Author Guide.
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 authorities responsible where the work was carried out. However, we accept submissions that have previously appeared on preprint servers (for example: arXiv, bioRxiv, Nature Precedings, Philica, Social Science Research Network, and Vixra); have previously been presented at conferences; or have previously appeared in other “non-journal” venues (for example: blogs or posters). Authors are responsible for updating the archived preprint with the journal reference (including DOI) and a link to the published articles on the appropriate journal website upon publication.
Any manuscripts out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are rejected. All submissions will be checked by Turnitin before being sent to reviewers.
As an Open Access publisher, CRIBFB charges an article processing charge to cover the publication costs. Please find the details HERE.
The waiver policy is only available to the journal reviewers and editorial board members, so long as they performed the assigned review task punctually and seriously. We do not waive or reduce APCs in any other case.
All products and services are sold “as is”. The author assumes the responsibility for the payment, and no refunds will be issued.
