Copyright policy

Open access commitment

At the Journal of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, we are committed to the fundamental principles of open access publishing. This commitment ensures that all articles, once published, are universally accessible online. We believe in removing financial barriers, allowing a wide and diverse audience, including researchers, scholars, and the public, to benefit from valuable scientific content.

Author-centric copyright policy

In acknowledgment of the intellectual contributions of our authors, we have established an author-centric copyright policy. This policy grants authors the retention of copyright for their published articles. By doing so, we empower authors with the right to use, reproduce, and share their work without constraints. This approach recognizes and respects the intellectual property of the individuals behind the research.

Wide distribution with proper attribution

The author\'s retention of copyright not only acknowledges their intellectual property but also facilitates wider distribution of their work. Authors are free to share their research, ensuring that the scientific community and the public benefit from their insights. This distribution, however, is subject to the condition that proper attribution is maintained, giving due credit to the original authors.

Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License

To formalize our commitment to openness, all articles newly published in the Journal of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. This license empowers users with the freedom to use, distribute, and reproduce the content in any medium, provided that they appropriately cite the original work. This licensing approach aligns with our mission to create a collaborative and accessible research environment.

Fostering collaborative research

By embracing open access and an author-centric copyright policy, we aim to foster a collaborative research environment. We believe that knowledge should be shared freely to advance scientific understanding. Our approach encourages researchers to engage in open dialogue, share insights, and collectively contribute to the progress of microbiology and infectious diseases research.
