Public statement on new Open Access policy
© Copyright LexisNexis 2024. All rights reserved.
Jordan Publishing Ltd is
pleased to announce the implementation of a new Open Access policy. Although we
primarily publish reference works, we do publish an important scholarly
journal, Child and Family Law Quarterly
(CFLQ), as part of our portfolio. We
are sensitive to the fact that academic authors considering submission to CFLQ
are affected by new funding and open access rules, and we wish to support them
by removing any barriers to their submitting articles to the journal.
Our Open Access policy is therefore fully compliant
with policies of both the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE)
and Research Council UK (RCUK) guidelines. For new,
qualifying article submissions going forward, and with immediate effect, we
will offer a “Green OA” option for authors’ articles upon acceptance. Authors
will pay no publication fee, and we will make a copy of the peer reviewed
manuscript (“post print”) freely available on the Web after an embargo period
consistent with the author’s funding agency’s requirements, under a Creative
Commons Attribution-NonCommercial (CC-BY-NC) licence. We will also deposit
article metadata on behalf of the author as necessary in OpenDepot.org.
