Peer-reviewed scientific articles shall be published under a global licence that guarantees immediate access free of charge. The licence must also guarantee the free redistribution and reproduction of article contents. This condition supports both the dissemination and reuse of research outputs and the researcher’s rights to the research outputs and the results presented in them.
As a rule, the Academy requires the use of Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) 4.0, but deviations from this requirement is possible in the following cases:
The articles may, subject to a licence, contain content produced by other authors, the copyright of which is not affected by the licences in question.
Special permission for the use of an exceptional licence shall be requested from the Academy. We are currently preparing guidelines for requesting these special permissions and plan to publish the guidelines by autumn 2021.
