Open Access Policy
In accordance with the BOAI definition of open access an initiative was taken in 2001 which aims to provide the public with unrestricted and free access to scholarly research. In general, open access stands for the free and permanent access to published research followed by the clear guidelines for readers to share and use the content (after adequate citation).
We follow ethical publishing guidelines defined by Directory of Open Access (DOAJ) and Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA). All the articles in IJIRG are open access, freely available, published and distributed under Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-Share Alike 4.0 International License. As per the open access policy all the scientific content published is accessible without any restriction or charges by readers. In order to support open access initiative APC is imposed for manuscript submission instead of charging any fee to the users to read the published content. The readers from the world are allowed unrestricted access to full articles. By allowing articles access open the citations can be increased which impacts its importance in scientific literature.
