Self-Archiving Policy

The Journal of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (JMID) is committed to fostering open access to scientific research and promoting the wider dissemination of knowledge. Our self-archiving policy empowers authors by allowing them to share their research at various stages of the publication process, from pre-submission to the final published article. This approach ensures that valuable scientific work is not confined by paywalls and is readily accessible to the global research community.

Pre-submitted Manuscripts

Authors are encouraged to proactively share their pre-submission manuscripts on preprint servers or repositories before submitting to JMID. This early dissemination facilitates engagement with fellow researchers and subject experts, potentially increasing the visibility and impact of the work. Authors should provide details about the pre-submitted manuscript, including the repository and corresponding DOI, in the cover letter during submission.

Submitted Manuscripts

Authors can archive their manuscripts after submission but before the initiation of the peer review process. To ensure transparency, authors need to email the journal\'s editorial office with information about the repository and corresponding DOI where the manuscript is archived.

Under Review State

During the peer review process, authors retain the permission to archive their manuscripts. An email to the journal\'s editorial office with details about the repository and associated DOI ensures accurate documentation and transparency.

Accepted Manuscripts

Once a manuscript is accepted for publication, authors can archive the accepted version. Authors are required to email the journal\'s editorial office with information about the repository and corresponding DOI.

Published Articles

After formal publication in JMID, authors can archive the published article. It is essential to update the DOI associated with the pre-print to match the one provided by the journal for the published version. Authors are encouraged to share the published article through various channels, including social media platforms, research platforms, institutional repositories, personal websites, and blogs, promoting broader dissemination and access to the research findings.
