Open Access and copyright

This is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access. Open access has gained tremendous support from both authors, who appreciate the increased visibility of their work, as well as science institutions and funders, who value the societal impact of freely available research results.

Article Processing Charges (APC):

To cover the cost of publication, authors pay an article processing charge (APC) for manuscripts accepted after double-blind peer review. There are no charges for rejected articles, no submission charges, and no surcharges based on the length of an article, figures or supplementary data. The APC is payable when your manuscript is editorially accepted and before publication, is charged to either you, or your funder, institution or employer. Fee is 200 euro..

What are the benefits of open access publishing?

Free availability thanks to unrestricted online access

Open access publications are freely available online to anyone, which maximizes the visibility, and thus the uptake and use of the work published.

Authors retain copyright

The use of a Creative Commons License enables authors/editors to retain copyright to their work. Publications can be reused and redistributed as long as the original author is correctly attributed. TTEM authors retain copyright and full publishing rights.

Rapid publication

A streamlined and easy to use online submission and production process enables quick review, approval and publication.

No space constraints

Publishing online means unlimited space for supplementary material including figures, extensive data and video footage.

Citation tracking and inclusion in bibliographic databases

Open access journals are tracked for impact factors and are deposited into bibliographic databases and institutional repositories without any embargo period just as traditional journals.

Reproducing Published Material from other Publishers

Authors are obligated to obtain permission to reproduce any published material (figures, schemes, tables or any extract of a text) which does not fall into the public domain, or for which they do not hold the copyright. Permission should be requested by the authors from the copyright holder (usually the Publisher, please refer to the imprint of the individual publications to identify the copyright holder).

Permission is required for:

Works of Authors published by other Publishers and for which they did not retain copyright. Substantial extracts from anyone's works or a series of works. Use of Tables, Graphs, Charts, Schemes and Artworks if they are unaltered or slightly modified. Photographs for which you do not hold copyright.

Permission is not required for:

Redefinition of your own table with data already published elsewhere. Please notice that in this case you must cite the source of the data in the form of either "Data from..." or "Adapted from...". Reasonably short quotes are considered fair use and therefore do not require permission. Graphs, Charts, Schemes and Artworks that are completely redrawn by the authors and significantly changed beyond recognition do not require permission.

Obtaining Permission

If in any doubt about the copyright, apply for permission. The copyright holder may give you instructions on the form of acknowledgement to be followed; otherwise follow the style: "Reproduced with permission from [author], [book/journal title]; published by [publisher], [year].' at the end of the caption of the Table, Figure or Scheme.

Authors take full responsibility for authorship of the paper (or used data and materials) as well as of copyright permission for any used material. In case of any disputes and copyright infringement DRUNPP / TTEM Journal has no responsibility.
