CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0 License

EJLL publishes its articles under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license (CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0). This allows for the non-commercial reuse of the published paper so long as the published paper is fully attributed. Commercial re-use can only be undertaken with the permission of the publisher.

Authors who submit papers to EJLL under a CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0 license do so under the Open Access facility. Authors will be asked to sign an Open Access license agreement prior to publication, details of which are:

Articles published under this arrangement are made freely available online upon publication without subscription barriers to access. Users of such published articles are entitled to use, reproduce, disseminate, or display these articles provided that:

The original authorship is properly and fully attributed;

The journal and publisher are attributed as the original place of publication with correct citation details given;

If an original work is subsequently reproduced or disseminated not in its entirety but only in part or as a derivative work this is clearly indicated;

No articles are reproduced for commercial use without the prior consent of EJLL;

Authors are also entitled to deposit the final electronic version of the article into an institutional or centrally organized subject repository upon publication.

This broad license has been developed to facilitate open access to, and free use of, original works of all types for personal, research and educational use but not commercial use;

In the future, EJLL may choose to produce printed copies of articles in bound form. This means that articles will reach a wider audience than users of the web-based journals we produce and that articles will be available in durable form. Without prejudice to the terms of the license. We reserve the right to reproduce the author's articles in this way. We further reserve the right to sell any copies made to EJLL’s benefit and credit.  This right is exclusive to EJLL and the author must disclose any third party who may have a conflict of interest in this regard.
