Open Access Policy

Oriental Journal of Chemistry, An International pioneer research Journal of pure and applied chemistry has taken and advanced step for the welfare of the research community by way of becoming an open access journal.

By the words open access we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.

We the publisher team of Oriental Journal of Chemistry congratulate the open access initiative taken in the conference of Budapest, Hungary on 14th February 2002 and we appreciate and favor the steps taken in this direction.

I am in full favour of the following views of Dr. Darius Cuplinskas (Director Information Program)

“We invite governments, universities, libraries, journal editors, publishers, foundations, learned societies, professional association, and individual scholars who share our vision to join us in the task of removing the barriers to open access and building a future in which research and education in every part of the world are that much more free to flourish”.
