Open Acces Policies
We support books with free access; this is in line with our commitment to exploring publishing models that are financially sustainable, scalable and in line with our mission to spread knowledge at the highest level of international excellence.
We facilitate free access publication of books through our Gold Open Access publishing program and our Green Open Access policy.
Gold Open Access
We offer authors the option of publishing their work as Open Access to make their work freely available online without compromising any aspect of the publishing process. Usually, we offer this option only for monographs, which are books usually written by one author to convey the results of their research and analysis in a particular field of study.
Under this model, the author (or funder) pays a Book Processing Fee, and the online version of the book is published under a Creative Commons License. Printed books and other digital versions (such as Kindle e-books) are available.
Green Open Access
Funders and other organizations often need their funded research to be freely available online. Green Open Access can only be licensed at CC BY-NC-SA (Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License).
Our Green Open Access policy helps authors comply with these requirements by making chapters of their books accessible in online repositories.
Our policies also determine what content can be shared on commercial sharing sites. See our social sharing page for more information on social sharing.
The Creative Commons (CC) license at the Publica Indonesia Utama institution only applies to the Gold Open Access issuance mechanism. The license policy applied to this mechanism refers to the Creative Commons License. This organization provides a legal framework to give users the ability to freely view, download and distribute content.
We offer authors a choice of Creative Commons licenses they can apply to their books, which differ in their rights to end-users. All licenses require that they redistribute or reuse their work, give appropriate credit and indicate whether any changes were made. Authors may be asked or advised by their funders to choose a specific CC license, such as CC-BY or CC-BY-ND when publishing their research on the Gold Open Access mechanism.
- CC-BY (Creative Commons Attribution License): Allows others to copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format and remix, modify and build on the material for any purpose, even commercially. It is often the preferred choice for journal articles, especially in science, technology, and medicine, as it allows other researchers to thoroughly use the findings in their work. It is also a required license for journal articles by several funders, including cOAlition S.
- CC-BY-SA (Creative Commons Attribution Share-alike License): Allows others to copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format and remixes, modifies and builds on the material for any purpose, even commercially, as long as it is distributed under the same license as the original. Some funders permit this license as an alternative to CC-BY.
- CC-BY-ND (Creative Commons No-Derivatives License): Allows others to copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format. However, if you remix, modify or build upon this modified material, it cannot be distributed. Some funders permit this license as an alternative to CC-BY.
- CC-BY-NC (Creative Commons Non-Commercial License): Allows others to copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format. However, these materials cannot be used for commercial purposes. This license can be a suitable license for a monograph as it protects the sale of printed copies while still leaving room for users to create derivative works from online versions for the benefit of all academics.
- CC-BY-NC-SA (Creative Commons Non-Commercial Share-alike): Allows others to copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format, remix, modify and build on the material for any non-commercial purpose, but such material may not be used for any commercial purposes. If material is remixed, modified or built upon, it must be distributed under the same license as the original. While Share-alike licenses can sometimes encourage further uptake of OA by authors looking to reuse content, they can also create unnecessary barriers to the reuse of OA content.
- CC-BY-NC-ND (Creative Commons Non-Commercial No-Derivatives License): Allows others to copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format. However, the material may not be used for commercial purposes, and if you remix, modify or build on top of this modified material, it cannot be distributed. This license is especially suitable for books and other products requiring significant revenue from the sale of derivative rights (for example, translation rights) to keep author fees low.
