Electronic Journal of Social Sciences (SBedergi), believes that information should be easily accessible in order for scientific studies to spread to a wider audience. In this context, open access policy is adopted.
According to the Budapest Open Access Initiative, which is adopted by SBEdergi, as "open access" we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users 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 Initiative’s Declaration also states that free access for scientists, researchers and students to content in scientific journals and the removal of barriers that hinder them from having free access would accelerate research studies, improve education and contribute to humanity to find unity in an environment of common intellectual ideas and information search, thus being of benefit.
All articles published in SBedergi are open from the date of publication and no fee is requested from those who want to download the articles.
