ARCHIVING POLICY

ARCHIVING POLICY

SPCRD Global Publishing is a “Green Publisher”, as we allow self-archiving of accepted and published papers through Open Access policy before and after the publication of a paper in READS. Authors retain the copyright of their scholarly work and can archive pre-print and post-print or publisher’s version/PDF to personal or institutional repositories or libraries anytime without requiring permission from the journal or publisher.

Authors of published articles in READS are entitled to deposit their accepted manuscript or the version of record (published papers) in institutional and/or centrally organized repositories and can make this publicly available immediately through Open Access upon acceptance and publication, provided that the journal and SPCRD Global Publishing are attributed as the original place of publication and that correct citation details are given.

Upon acceptance of paper by the journal, the authors acknowledge while making their article publicly available that the article has been accepted for publication as follows:

This article has been accepted for publication in the "Review of Economics and Development Studies (READS) Published by SPCRD Global Publishing".

Authors can also make their published article publicly available immediately after publication without requiring any permission to different repositories, libraries, or personal websites provided that they also deposit the URL of their published article, in addition to the PDF version by correctly citing the journal name and SPCRD Global Publishing as publisher along with other citation details.
