Open Access Policy

The Journal of Earth and Marine Technology (JEMT) is committed to the principles of Open Access (OA), following the definition laid out by the Budapest Open Access Initiative. This means that we provide free, immediate access to all published content on our official website. Our goal is to support a greater global exchange of knowledge by making our articles freely accessible to researchers, practitioners, and the general public without any financial, legal, or technical barriers, aside from those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself.

All articles published by JEMT are made immediately available worldwide under an open access license. This means:

  1. Everyone has free and unlimited access to the full-text of all articles published in JEMT; everyone is free to re-use the published material given proper accreditation/citation of the original publication in this journal.
  2. All authors retain their copyright and are able to distribute their work widely without restrictions, as long as the work is correctly cited and referenced.
  3. Open access publication is supported by the authors' institutes or research funding agencies through payment of a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) for accepted articles.

JEMT believes that open access publishing fosters the exchange of research results among scientists from different disciplines, thus facilitating interdisciplinary research. Open access publishing also provides access to research results to a wider audience, offering an improved knowledge exchange between academia and society.

By offering a broad, audience-wide accessibility to the content, we support a meaningful contribution to the advancement of knowledge within and beyond the scientific community.
