Open Access Options

After manuscripts were accepted, author(s) have a right to request the accepted manuscripts published by L&H Scientific publishing with open access, and the author(s) have a responsibility to paying the open access publication fee. The copyright is still held by the Publisher, but the open access permission is given to the author(s) as follows. Without any request of the open access publication, the accepted manuscripts are assumed to be published traditionally. This journal offers authors two choices to publish their research.

  • Open access: Articles are freely available to both subscribers and the wider public with permitted reuse. An open access publication fee is payable by authors or their research funder.
  • Subscription: Articles are made available to subscribers through our access programs. No open access publication fee.

L&H scientific does offer alternative open access publishing options in accordance with funding body requirements. Your publication choice will have no effect on the peer review process or acceptance of your submission.Fax: 1-618-545-9338

Self-archiving Policy

Authors can share their research in a variety of different ways. The author(s) can also self-archive their author manuscript immediately and enable public access from their institution's repository after an embargo period. This is the version that has been accepted for publication and which typically includes author-incorporated changes suggested during submission, peer review and in editor-author communications.

An author is entitled to post the accepted manuscript in their institution's repository and make this public after an embargo period (known as self-archiving). The embargo period for this journal can be found below.

Without the L&H permission, the published journal article cannot be shared publicly, such as, on ResearchGate or, to ensure the sustainability of peer-reviewed research in journal publications.

Embargo period: For subscription articles, an appropriate amount of time is needed for journals to deliver value to subscribing customers before a manuscript becomes available for free to the public. This is called an embargo period and it begins from the date the article is formally published online in its final and fully citable form.

This journal has an embargo period of 24 months and the embargo period for the USA is 12 months.
